Finding a Bus STOP Number

Bus STOP Numbers are available at ABQ RIDE bus stop pucks and online.

Bus STOP Number: Sign Pucks

To find the bus STOP number, look for the round puck with a tactile blue 4-digit number posted on the bus stop pole four to five feet above the ground.

Most pucks will face the sidewalk.

The bus STOP number also appears in Type II Braille below the tactile number.

See the map of routes that have bus STOP number pucks installed.
