ABQ Ride

NM: Save Money and Time; Take ABQ RIDE to the New Mexico State Fair

ABQ Ride provides an economical and timely service to the state fair. From its four park-and-ride facilities, ABQ Ride serves the fair with four bus routes, including Rapid Ride routes No. 766 and No. 777, Route No. 66 and Route No. 157 to drop off and pick up fairgoers at Central and Louisiana and at other bus stops adjacent to the fairgrounds.

A free weekend shuttle at the fair will again be provided during this final Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Fair. From Noon to 11:30 p.m., the shuttle will pick up fairgoers at the casino entrance and shuttle them to the admission booths inside the state fair grounds.

Fairgoers can use four ABQ Ride park-and-ride lots for regular bus service to the state fairgrounds. The most recommended park-and-ride for fairgoers is the closest one to the fair, the uptown transit center park-and-ride facility, located just south of Coronado Shopping Center. The other park-and-ride facilities are located at: Coors By-Pass and Ellison, Central and Unser, and at Wenonah and Tramway.

Regular fares apply. Accompanied children age 9 and younger ride free. Bus fares do not include admission to the fair.
