ALBUQUERQUE – Today, ABQ Ride joined forces with community volunteers for a day dedicated to keeping Albuquerque’s bus stops and ART stations clean and safe. A team of twenty-one volunteers collaborated with the ABQ RIDE team to pick up 2420 pounds of debris and clean as many as thirty different bus stops and ART stations.

“ABQ RIDE is proud to spread the message of One Albuquerque through community collaboration to ensure our City is clean and safe,” said ABQ RIDE Director Leslie Keener. “The Adopt-a-Stop program is a great way to get involved in the community and assist our staff with maintaining our public bus stops.”

Adopt-a-Stop currently has 41 volunteers and 58 of stops have been adopted. Anyone interested in getting involved with the program can register at



ABQ RIDE strives to be the first choice in transportation services for the Albuquerque Metropolitan area. By using this alternative to the single-occupant vehicle, riders are helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and alleviate traffic congestion while building a strong, resourceful, and sustainable community.
