ABQ RIDE Offering Full Service for Presidents Day

Six Routes into Kirtland AFB Detouring Due to Gate Closures for the Day

ABQ RIDE will run its regular weekday schedule on Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 19, 2018 for both fixed routes and Sun Van service.

That includes Commuter Service and Rail Runner Express Bus service (the New Mexico Rail Runner Express will also run its regular weekday schedule).

Customer Service windows at the Alvarado Transportation Center at 1st and Central SW will be open that day. 243-RIDE (7433) assistance will also be available for Sun Van reservations.
