ABQ Ride


The city of Albuquerque received word Tuesday that it got the OK on federal support to build a bus rapid transit system.


The Albuquerque Rapid Transit project would create dedicated bus lanes in the middle of Central Avenue. It's expected to cost the city nearly $120 million dollars with – about $70 million coming from the Federal Transit Administration according to President Obama’s budget.


Numerous businesses along Central fear prolonged construction and congestion that could deter customers.
