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.
Why is the Rio Bravo bridge closed? What's the detour for the 51 bus?
Let me start by saying I am very impressed with ART. I have used public transport around the world and this system is quite comparable to the best--although the scale is tiny in comparison, and there are a few small things that would make it truly world-class. First, there should be a dedicated, easy-to-find link on the main web page where interested people could leave suggestions for improving the service. If you want this page to serve as such a vehicle you should make it plain on your website. Second, you must put route maps inside the buses. Preferably, they should be interactive showing the real-time location of the bus within the route. You have excellent video displays at the stations that do this but there should be the equivalent onboard. Some of the stations' displays were down on Friday, by the way. I understand that costs are a concern so real-time video may not be possible for now. It should be the goal, but you must have route maps onboard even if they are old-fashioned posters. You have them as well at the stations but once you get onboard there are none. My son pointed out that you provide free wifi onboard so riders can use their smartphones. That is a good backup but if the bus really gets well used, crowded, relying on your phone might be rough. Third, it is disappointing that the station names and the digital displays on board, as well as the recorded announcements onboard, are not the same. I don't recall the specifics but the names on your timetables, route maps, digital displays, and recorded announcement must match precisely. We were returning home after dark, we are life-long Albuquerque residents and we were significantly confused about where we were. The lights onboard are great for security but they make seeing any landmarks impossible. IF you expect visitors to use ART, you must make it easier to understand. Referring to the "Bryn-Mawr" station on some media and "Nob Hill" elsewhere as well as not providing onboard maps is a recipe for frustration and bad reviews. Travellers (as well as locals) will read disparaging remarks online and shun ART like the plague. Thank you for a good start. I hope you continue putting effort in fine-tuning the existing system and adding to the service: think the Airport and Sandia Laboratory, the VA, . . .
FIRST VEHICLE ACCIDENT ON ART BUS. And so it begins! As I predicted. There will be more to come. What I wonder is WHY hasn't the City done more to inform the public about the rules concerning the ART bus lanes, etc.? Yes, the information is online but most people are not aware of that, know where to find it, or do not have access. They need to send out a bilingual flyer to everyone in the county explaining the lane rules and the signal signs, how to make left turns in the ART corridor, etc. If people can have a piece of paper to refer to and carry with them in the car or on their person, they would be able to answer their questions.The City has not really explained to the public what to do right. Having the Police ticket people doesn't really do the job. Giving out pamphlets on the buses doesn't really help the drivers know what to do! At some point, most people will need to cross Central Ave. and/or drive on it, so we all need this information!
How can the guy in the pickup be making an illegal left turn when there is no sign posted saying you can only turn on a green arrow. I’ve been asking this question for over a year? No one will answer this question. Nor will they post green arrow only signs. And you have to wait about 5 minutes for an arrow. Use your common sense people; post the signs, fix the traffic lights for mercy's sake.
