Previously, Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART) reduced bus service due to the stay-at-home order. However, some city councilors questioned if that measure was keeping people distanced. So, to address crowding on Route 66 buses, the city added additional buses to the 66 and the 766 routes in order to spread ridership more so one bus can follow another bus to allow for more social distancing. According to the city, some drivers have also taped off sections inside the bus. The transit department also encouraged riders to wear face coverings to help protect themselves and the bus drivers. The buses are being sterilized during the morning, night, and after routes. Bus drivers are helping to sanitize.
