Livability, Health and Transportation in the Albuquerque Metro Area

Get Transported

morguefile.com

Every metropolis has public transit. Portland boasts light rails and TriMet stops. Boston has the "T” and Albuquerque has...uhh…a few buses that we are eternally grateful for, kinda sketched out by and that are sometimes on time. Public transit plays an enormous role in the livability, safety and economy of a city. It’s an integral part of city development and, if prioritized and welcomed, can really change a lot of people’s lives. If you don’t have a car, think of how awesome it would be to go out on a Friday night, get shitcanned and have a way to get your dumb, drunk ass home. With the banishment of Lyft and no public transit later in the evening, lack of options and selfishness yield deadly consequences. Never mind going to the bar, think of how many people’s job search could be expanded if they only had reliable, safe public transit to get them from point A to point B. The Greater Albuquerque Habitat for Humanity Restore (4900 Menaul NE) thinks transportation is important and will be hosting a community event lead by Andrew Gingerich Thursday, Aug. 20, from 5:30pm to 7pm. The event is free and open to all ages. (Amelia Olson)
