ART Service Resumes June 13 with Saturday-Type Schedule, Regular ABQ RIDE Service Expands as City Reopens

Routes begin to come back with Saturday-Type Schedule, Earlier Starting Times

On Saturday, June 13, 2020, ABQ RIDE will resume or expand 14 of its public transportation bus routes, which will include resuming ART service on a limited schedule.

As bus operations expand, the City will continue to put the health and safety of the public and Transit employees at the forefront and will continue to implement COVID-safe practices including increasing sanitization. To maintain social distancing, routes will still run at limited schedules and capacity so reserve buses can be assigned to busier routes as needed.

“We’re bringing back many of the ABQ RIDE service routes that were closed or operating limited service during the height of the public health pandemic, including the ART service line,” said Danny Holcomb, City of Albuquerque Director of Transit. “The Transit Department will expand service while continuing to support social distancing.”
