ABQ Ride, the City Transit system, is proposing major upgrades to the Central Avenue bus service in the form of a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, somewhat like that in Cleveland, Ohio, and some other cities.

While UHA supports improved transit, it has numerous concerns about the design for the BRT in the university area, and the impact of the BRT on neighborhood traffic on the north-south streets and Silver, Lead, and Coal. 

UHA's concerns to the city were described in a letter on December 18, 2014.

UHA is continuing to encourage neighborhood residents and businesses to learn about the ART and be involved in the continuing discussions and decisions about the project.
