ALBUQUERQUE-Mayor Martin Chávez and ABQ RIDE Director Greg Payne are pleased to announce the return of the Albuquerque Old Town Trolley. Summer service began Memorial Day Weekend and will continue through Labor Day Weekend.
“The trolley is an Albuquerque institution – one of the little things that make the city special,” said Mayor Chávez. “It’s fun, it’s festive, and it’s popular with locals and tourists alike.”
The trolley will run Wednesday through Sundays during the summer. The trolley will originate in Old Town and travel primarily via Mountain, 12th Street, Lomas and 2nd Street to the Alvarado Transportation Center at 1st and Central. Popular attractions along the route include the Old Town Plaza, Albuquerque Museum, Explora! Children’s Museum and Tiguex Park.
“The trolley serves an area that is rich in history and culture,” said ABQ RIDE Director Greg Payne. “The trolley is the perfect way to enjoy Albuquerque’s finest museums, art, dining and shopping.”
The trolley will run every 35 minutes from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. There is no trolley service on Mondays or Tuesdays.
Trolley fares are $1 for adults and 35 cents for children. All valid ABQ RIDE bus passes are also accepted.
