ONE ALBUQUERQUE #paintforpeace505

What's up Albuquerque Fam! We participated in the #paintforpeace505 mural show on July 17, 2020 with Alvarado Transit Center as one of the mural sites. We are proud to show solidarity with the community because this is the perfect time to stand together. One Albuquerque.

The last few weeks have been a troubling and soul-stirring time for our country and our city. There have been calls for justice, understanding, equality, and especially change to the status of those among us who lack a voice in the conversation about the soul of our country.

Transit is a part of the city that serves all races, creeds, colors and class without regard to their differences. We are an entity within the city that has been etched into the national memory of the struggle for civil rights, and in Albuquerque, we strive daily to maintain a high level of civility and honor with everyone who rides a bus.

In this regard, we stand with our mayor and our governor in saying Black Lives Matter, because it is a call to end a way of thinking that has left members of our community, voiceless, vulnerable and pushed out of the light of true democracy that all people should benefit from.

At Transit, we practice equality and equanimity. We must, in order to correctly serve the city. It is not a matter of accommodation. It is an answer to the social contract that we have with our citizens. If you live here, we will provide a way for you to freely move throughout the city; safely and at a price that we can all afford. Because Transit is a grand equalizer in regards to creating opportunities for social mobility, based on affordable transportation to and from work. This is why we stand with the movement. We appreciate and support the efforts of law enforcement in all they do to keep the city safe. We understand that they have one of the hardest roads to walk right now. In that spirit of understanding and the struggles of everyone involved, we ask that we collectively do our best to understand the position of those who differ and find ways to coexist peacefully.

Only 2 Buses on Route 10 Northfourth? only 2 gps on.
Only 2 Active Buses on route 10 North 4th!!!😎🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👎👎👎👎👎
Hi, who do I talk to about the constant issues involving buses on the 155 route? Buses are constantly 5 to 6 minutes early from their scheduled time and when I make an attempt to rush to a bus stop that the drivers are EARLY to, the drivers make no attempt to stop or wait. Just now, I'm sitting at the bus stop waiting and the bus shows up five minutes early. Even my bus tracking app says it is four minutes away. By the time I react and gather my things, the driver has pulled away and refuses to stop. I get that it's on me to pay attention but it is several minutes before the expected time! I only seem to experience this issue on the 155 line and it happens constantly.
June 19, 2020, about 10am, I just checked cabq.gov/transit and find new, up-to-date information about Suntran bus service😄😃😂s! Now I can go somewhere around town other than the one grocery store on west Central! Hooray! Thank you!
I used a #66 on June 11. Saw a small sign about some schedules changing soon, improving, later this month. Nothing about that here on FB or on Suntran website. If I see sign again, I'll take a picture of it as that may be the only way I can get the info I need to prepare.
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?
