By order of our Governor, we strongly encourage riders to use face masks or face coverings while riding on our buses. Those riders who get on without one will be asked to use a face mask or covering the next time they ride ABQ RIDE buses. Wearing a face mask or face covering not only protects our drivers, but also the other people on the bus. Please be a responsible rider.

Adam Perez, bus driver and photographer extraordinaire.
An organization is more than just the work that it does. It’s made of people who have diverse backgrounds, talents, interests and histories. This diversity makes the organization stronger than the sum of its parts. During this time of insecurity, we wanted to illustrate some light in the tunnel. So we looked inside our organization to find some treasures in our backyard. One of them is bus driver Adam Perez, a 13 year veteran of ABQ RIDE. About 10 years ago, he started taking pictures that were more skilled than the average Joe’s. He went from using his phone to picking up a workhorse digital camera that stretched his creativity and skill in new direction. And that turned into a whole new skill set. Adam also took up composing photos and taught himself how to use Photoshop to create more stunning photo illustrations. He told us he enjoys shooting the world around him. But his favorite genre of photography is black and white. He also placed in the top three at the State Fair the past three years. The result of all this self-taught wizardry is a growing group of stunning photos and photo illustrations that showcase a unique appreciation of New Mexico’s land and culture. If you would like to see more of his work, follow him on https://www.instagram.com/gravedigger611/.

Bus drivers keep New York City moving during coronavirus pandemic

Here's a story on NBC about bus drivers keeping New York City moving during the pandemic. It reflects the heroism of our bus and Sun Van drivers in Albuquerque. They are among our true heroes in this very difficult time.

Bus operator Terence Layne has served his city for nearly 21 years — driving New Yorkers through September 11, Superstorm Sandy and now the coronavirus pandemic. He tells Lester Holt how he feels fulfilled helping others, but worries about getting infected.

Oh! Also it would be nice to know when Suntran hopes to resume anything close to "normal" weekday service. I haven't done any real shopping since early March, only going to one grocery store (on Central) via bus. I'd like to go other places w/o having to wait a long time for a bus to come...
It would be nice if Suntran would let riders know if there will be any delays or even closed bus stops downtown after the young fascist attacked businesses along Central last night (5/31). The stops at the Library and at 5th-6th on Gold are of particular interest to me, but folks may also wish to know if the ATC is effected. There is zero info about this on Suntran's website, and tweeting a request was probably useless, so trying here is the only thing I can think of that may share the info far and wide... if you let us know.
Good morning. I was wondering why abq ride is not enforcing social distancing on city buses. This morning on my ride to work, the bus was jam packed. And a lot of people didnt look like they were riding it for a necessity. Also some people still not wearing masks.
Happy Earth Day:)...this is great news!
I am worrried.I have had bus drivers tell me all buses will shut own.if the coronavirus rates go up even further.There are people in this town,who don't have cars,and rely on the bus to get food,prescriptions,etc. My hope is that you will continue to keep at least the 66 running indefinitely.Also,some drivers are refusing to accept fares.Will every bus adopt this policy?
The news just said that the busses will be running on a Saturday schedule, why is there nothing on this page about it??
The City of Albuquerque should allow all passengers to ride free and come though the rear doors, to have drivers avoid contact with passengers.
So if drivers are being forced to drive without any protection. Why are we being treated like animals
Sometimes I really think some of these bus drivers need to go back to training!!! Leaving early, running red lights, and speeding. Bus 54 Westgate bus number 754. And it's not just this bus.
Your ART bus drivers need to slow da fug down. at least go the sped limit. there's no excuse for them to be running late. everyone else doesn't have an open lane like you. so why da fug are your drivers driving so fast?
