Schedule Changes

Information about schedule changes for Albuquerque's bus system.

Schedule Changes, effective June 14, 2021

Limited service will resume on ABQ RIDE’s commuter routes.

The routes may be serviced by Sun Vans, as opposed to city buses, in order to sensibly meet current levels of demand and still observe public health orders in place for transit services. Each van or bus will operate at 50% capacity, according to local and federal mandates. Masks will still be required for all passengers and drivers, as they are on all city buses and transit properties.

With one exception, commuter service will be restored on designated trips, which had high ridership before the pandemic began. Service will be provided on about half of pre-pandemic scheduled trips, with the exception of the Route 162 Ventana Ranch Commuter, which will operate pre-pandemic scheduled trips only on request. To request a ride on Route 162, passengers should call ABQ RIDE at (505) 243 -7433 and select option three by 5 p.m. the day before the ride is needed.

Routes beginning limited service on June 14th are:

6 – Indian School

7 – Candelaria

12 – Constitution

13 – Comanche

34 – San Pedro

92 – Taylor Ranch

93 – Academy

94 – Unser

96 – Crosstown

98 – Wyoming

162 – Ventana Ranch Commuter (by request only)


Route 551 will not resume service at this time.Β  Please use route 251 as an alternative.
