Mayor Tim Keller

Important message from Mayor Tim Keller. He's declared a state of local emergency to tap into funds available for recovery and response to the crisis.

Mayor Keller Declares Local State of Emergency to Tap Into Funds for Recovery and Response (See personal message from Mayor Keller below)

UPDATE: Directing resources to response and recovery, allows City to tap into State and Federal Funding

Today, Mayor Tim Keller declared a local public health emergency (video available on YouTube and downloadable on Dropbox) due to the novel coronavirus COVID-19, joining dozens of states and local governments, including the City of Rio Rancho, that are dedicating additional resources to an outbreak the World Health Organization has formally designated as a global pandemic.
The emergency declaration (attached) allows the City to direct funds for the coronavirus response and request additional resources from the state and federal government.
“We are continuing to take action to slow the spread of the coronavirus and help the most vulnerable folks in our community,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “Like many mayors across the nation, declaring this public health emergency declaration gives us the tools to allocate resources to immediate needs and tap into additional funds for recovery and response.”

This declaration does not:
• Limit the sale or transfer of firearms
• Prohibit the sale of liquor
• Close streets
• Declare a curfew

Yesterday, Mayor Keller convened a series of virtual meetings with public safety officials, business leaders and the Volunteers Advisory Board to discuss the state of the public health emergency in Albuquerque. He did emphasize that while there are many blessings that come with being the largest metropolitan area in roughly 1,000 square miles, it also means that we have by far the most connectivity and density in the region through our shopping malls, airport, hospitals and other large facilities. Thus, going forward the City may have to have stronger restrictions than the rest of the state, and other New Mexico cities, in the near future.

The best way to slow the spread of COVID-19 is to practice proactive social distancing. It is crucial that the public avoid large gatherings, order food from restaurants to-go, work from home and stay home in general if at all possible. The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to the flu, with fever, coughing, and trouble breathing. The City is urging those who believe they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to call the New Mexico Department of Health at 855-600-3453.

The latest information on City facilities, programs and events will be continuously updated here: https://www.cabq.gov/news/coronavirus-impacts-on-city-services.
Yesterday, Mayor Keller signed the public health emergency powers provisions, O-20-4, which was passed at Monday’s City Council meeting. Previous to passage, the Mayor already had general emergency powers that can be used in this, or other general emergency situations, for a 48 hour period. This new provision only provides specifically for “public health” situations.

ABQ RIDE is using a comprehensive approach to keep fixed bus and Sun Van riders and drivers as safe as possible.

Service is running as normal, and ABQ RIDE is reminding riders to frequently wash their hands, cough into the crooks of their arms or a tissue, and call the NMDOH hotline if you feel you have COVID-19 symptoms.

We are cleaning and disinfecting every bus and Sun Van each night, bringing in ten additional temporary staff to assist with that workload.

ABQ RIDE will place new information about any service changes or updates on its message monitors at ART platforms, push notices on the ABQ RIDE App, ABQ RIDE website, Text2Ride service, social media platforms, and signs on fare boxes on the buses. 311 is also a great resource for people looking for information.

The Transit Advisory Board meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 12, 2020 has been cancelled. Also, the Paratransit Advisory Board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 17 also has been cancelled. Given the news that COVID-19 presumptive cases have been found in New Mexico and the recent recommendation from the Governor’s office (to cancel any non-essential events), for everyone’s safety both the TAB and PTAB boards decided to cancel their meetings. The boards encourage everyone to stay home, especially if they're sick.

Enjoyed the Urban Land Institute's tour of development on Central, via the ART system. Much development on Central the past few years and is continuing.

Placemaking brings together cultural resources and transportation options to accelerate economic development. The ULI New Mexico hosted "Arriving by ART" to showcase how this approach to growth is strengthening our #OneAlbuquerque community. We are proud to support this event and appreciate all who came along yesterday. Mayor Tim Keller put it best, "thank you to everyone for believing in the power of design."

Mayor Keller drives and explains the ART route. In Part One of his series, he explains the U-turn sign on eastbound Central and its intersection with I-40. It may seem confusing to some, but Mayor Keller helps clear the confusion.

We took a ride through the ART route to try and clear up some of the confusion about the traffic signals. Here’s part 1: from EDo.

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?
If there's updates about weather-related schedule changes, will we see them here?
Is bus service going to remain operational 01/16/2020 - Snowing???
Just for your information: Last week (around January 8 or so), screen on ticket booth at Central and San Mateo was shattered and useless. On January 14 I tried to use a $0.15 refund ticket (I had paid too much earlier) that I planned to add $0.20 to for a ride ticket, but there is nowhere to insert the refund ticket. Also, my $0.20 kept falling through, unwanted (this was at the Library Stop at Copper and 6th). At Central and Coors, the ticket booth points directly west and the afternoon sun makes the screen impossible to see. I report these three problems because it means that Suntran is loosing money due to lack of planning. It makes me wonder if people who actually ride Suntran are consulted ahead of time about how to make using the service a pleasure. While free is good... taxpayers pick up the tab anyhow.🤔
Why do these ART drivers drive these busses like theyre in the Indy 500? Its very uncomfortable, when they slam on brakes, step on the gas all of a sudden and make turns on a dime! Its a wonder why they are constantly getting in fender benders. Its very anmoying.
What is the point of having a dispatch phone number if the dispatcher isn't there. At least say you're completely closed instead of wasting my time. I've been trying to get a hold of dispatch to cancel my ride. This sunvan service could really use a major reorganization.
Just a suggestion but you might want to decline people who reek of body odor. This also includes the sunvan. Seriously it's gross and I have to sit the whole ride including drop-offs and pick-ups smelling that repugnant smell. Thank you.
Visited ABQ for Christmas and did not know about this new lane. Such a horrible idea considering you have a lot of tourist. Your bus drivers are horribly aggressive us figuring out this lane.
