The standard bus fare in Albuquerque is a dollar, or two bucks for a day pass. Community advocates have long called on the city to make the busses free and the city’s Transit Advisory Board is now doing the same. The board unanimously passed a resolution last month calling for the city to eliminate fares for everyone, including both youth and adults. Now, the City Council has joined in by including a “fare-free” model in the budget priorities it sent to Mayor Tim Keller last week. KUNM’s Nash Jones spoke with Israel Chávez, Chair of the City’s Transit Advisory Board, about how it would work.
