Residents spoke with planners at second Albuquerque Rapid Transit meeting

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – On Thursday night, the city will host the final meeting in the fourth round of meetings on the Albuquerque Rapid Transit project.

The city hosted the second Albuquerque Rapid Transit Project meeting of the month on Wednesday night.

Officials say people who would be affected the most were encouraged to attend. They sat in groups and spoke with planners about what’s to come and what the city is willing to do to help them during construction.

“When we are spending tax payer dollars, we need to know what tax payers want, what they expect from us, and how to deliver that,” said Michael Riordan, City of Albuquerque Administrator.

The project would set up bus stops along the middle of Central, with bus-only lanes to make routes faster.

The city hopes it will attract new riders to public transit.

The next meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday at the convention center. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
