Albuquerque will minimize bus fares for passengers in 2022
“For three years we have been committed to the expansion of accessibility and affordability in local public transport and have been working with our partners on a free-of-charge program,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “With the support of the council, we are now able to continue the free-of-charge pilot program at ABQ RIDE for 12 months. My administration looks forward to learning from this important pilot project and will continue to finalize the implementation plan with support from community members, bus drivers and public safety departments. “
The Council had previously postponed the vote several times.
The program will now come into effect on January 1, 2022.
