ABQ RIDE Buses
Get to your destination using ABQ Ride, the City of Albuquerque's public transit system.
UNM/ABQ RIDE Bus Pass Program
Eligible UNM students, faculty, and staff can ride ABQ Ride (City of Albuquerque transit system) for FREE with a bus pass sticker. Students must be registered for at least 3 credit hours. UNM faculty and staff must meet the eligibility requirements (former staff, faculty, retirees, and temporary staff/faculty are currently not eligible). Stickers must be renewed every academic year.
ABQ Ride will honor the current 2017-2018 bus stickers until Sunday, September 9. We will begin distributing 2018-2019 bus stickers on Saturday, August 11.
Bus pass stickers are distributed at:
- Transportation Information Center (TIC) in the Student Union Building
