Koch Brothers Tentacles Reach Out to Squelch Albuquerque BRT

Albuquerque, like many cities, is looking at bus rapid transit as a cost-effective way to improve mobility and create a more walkable city. Its BRT plan calls for frequent service on a center-running bus lane along Central Avenue, the city's busiest bus route, which passes through the heart of downtown.

The city has applied for funding from the Federal Transit Administration's Small Smarts program. With $80 million in federal funds matched by $20 million in local funds, service could begin in 2017.
