Park and Ride Studies

Information about planning efforts for new park and ride lots.

SW Quadrant Park-and-Ride

A park-and-ride site is an integral part of a transit system, especially on Albuquerque’s west side where travel to work can be time consuming. ABQ RIDE has two existing park-and-ride facilities located on the West Mesa – at Central Avenue and Unser Boulevard, as well as the Northwest Transit Center near Cottonwood Mall. These sites are well used, but there remains a large portion of the west side without close and convenient access to park-and-ride facilities.

ABQ RIDE’s goal is to find and develop a park-and-ride site south of Central Avenue and west of the Rio Grande to improve public access to transit. ABQ RIDE has studied five potential site locations in this area. ABQ RIDE will be hosting a virtual public meeting to share the findings of the study and discuss the recommendations. There will be a presentation followed by a question-and-answer session with the project team.

View the five potential locations for a new Park and Ride project in the Southwest area of Albuquerque.

 

We need your input to help us complete the study, select a preferred location, and advance the project. ABQ RIDE is accepting comments and questions about the project through December 16, 2022. Please forward those responses to [email protected] or mail them to:

Coors Blvd. Park-and-Ride

ABQ RIDE has two successful park-and-ride facilities located on the West Mesa – at Central Avenue and Unser Boulevard, as well as the Northwest Transit Center near Cottonwood Mall. These sites are almost 11 miles apart, which leaves a large portion of the west side unserved.

ABQ RIDE’s goal is to find and develop a park-and-ride site between the two existing sites to improve access to transit. ABQ RIDE has evaluated six potential facilities along Coors Boulevard between St. Joseph’s Drive and Montaño Plaza. ABQ RIDE shared the findings of the study and their recommendations in a virtual public meeting.
