I don't know why the City doesn't push this more (okay, yes I do), but it's a little-known fact that ABQ Ride offers a Business Partnership program to get reduced-cost monthly bus passes.
The program sounds fancy-schmancy. What it boils down to is that if you and a few other (8+?) people can band together and say you'll buy bus passes every month, you can get them for $20 -- an $8 savings for true commuters. As long as you ride 3 days a week, you're saving money!
For more information on ABQ RIDE’s Business Partnership Program, call 724-3139 to set up a meeting with a marketing specialist. You can haggle about how few passes you have to guarantee to buy every month, but if your office is fairly large, chances are there are folks out there already buying passes for full price! How much easier would it be to get them delivered to your office? Pretty easy!
Oh, and if you want to see the City and Greg Payne get props. for improving the bus system, read here:
