In conjunction with plans for the revitalization of Downtown, initiatives to grow the City’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, and efforts to provide reliable transportation choices to residents, the City of Albuquerque is developing bus rapid transit service along nine miles of Central Avenue.

Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART)

This project, called Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART), will connect major destination points, including ABQ Uptown, Nob Hill, UNM, EDo, Downtown, the BioPark and Old Town. It will also serve as a catalyst to enhance the vibrancy of neighborhoods along the route, improving walkability along the corridor and fostering economic development investment and job growth.

Projected in-service date: End of 2017
