Rapid Transit Project Capital Investment Program Project Profiles: FY 2017

The City of Albuquerque’s Transit Department (ABQRide) is implementing bus rapid transit (BRT) along Central Avenue (Historic Route 66) from Tramway Boulevard in the east to Atrisco Vista Road in the west, although physical right-of-way improvements are planned for only the innermost 8.8 miles. The project includes dedicated stations with raised platforms accommodating level boarding, off-board fare collection, a mix of exclusive bus lanes and operation in mixed traffic, traffic signal priority, and the purchase of 18 vehicles. Service is planned to operate every 7 ½ minutes on weekdays, every 10 minutes on Saturdays, and every 15 minutes on Sundays.
