66 Late Night extends weekend service on CentralMay 23rd, 2013 at 10:57 am by Hawa Konte under Community Affairs, News
During summer weekends, ABQ RIDE’s 66 Late Night is launching to help Albuquerque residents get to and stay later at fun spots along Central Avenue.
Starting Friday, May 24th, 2013, service on Route #66-Central will be extended by one hour, until 1:00 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays until September 21, 2013.
“66 Late Night can take you to almost any of Albuquerque’s summer hot spots,” said Mayor Richard J. Berry. “And you can save a lot of money by riding the #66 and leaving your car behind.”
66 Late Night utilizes the #66-Central buses, which run from ABQ RIDE’s Park & Ride at Tramway and Wenonah all the way to the Central and Unser Transit Center.
Riders along Central can use this bus to access four of Albuquerque’s main entertainment districts- Old Town, Downtown, Nob Hill and East Central and do so at later hours.
66 Late Night runs every 30 minutes, with the last pickups through Downtown at about 1:00 a.m. The fare is $1 per trip.
