City announces ART bus routes to River of Lights

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) –  Albuquerque Rapid Transit construction has caused quite the headache for drivers, but the city hopes it will be a solution for this year’s River of Lights.

The River of Lights is one of the city’s most popular events and with that comes a lot of traffic.

Monday, Mayor Richard Berry invited River of Lights attendees to be among the first to ride the ART buses for free to the annual holiday event.

Westside ART service will be running every 15 minutes on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-10 p.m.

Park and Ride will be available at the Central & Unser Transit Center next to the Patrick Baca Library.

Attendees opting to walk from home can catch ART at:

  • Coors at Central
  • Yucca at Old Coors and Central
  • Atrisco at Coors and Atrisco

Attendees will be dropped off at the BioPark bus station near New York and Central.

The River of Lights opens Nov. 25 and runs through Dec. 30.
