The ART project will improve access to education.
Over 10 years ago I served on a committee to make recommendations to improve bus service to the South Valley. At the time bus service was minimal with infrequent bus route times and inadequate availability throughout the valley.
Although somewhat improved now, more and better service is needed but not just in the South Valley; however, the ART project will improve mass transit for everyone in Albuquerque making the whole system more efficient and encouraging more ridership and more service.
Undoubtedly the biggest benefit of the ART project will reduce travel time through the biggest mass transit corridor in Albuquerque; 42 percent of all bus ridership occurs along Central Avenue, making it obvious as a place to begin expanding transit capability.
