WORK WITH YOUR CITY, FOR YOUR CITY

Driving for ABQ Ride has a bigger impact than you might think. People from all across our city depend on public transportation to get where they need to be, whether it’s commuting to their job, running errands, or going to other important destinations. As a driver, you’ll get the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life, allowing you to hone your soft skills while helping your community stay mobile and connected.

There’s never a dull moment in the driver’s seat. The city has a life of its own, and that really comes into focus when your office sits behind the windshield of a bus. You’ll have an opportunity to see your city in a way that the average commuter seldom does. The road can be an unpredictable place, but predictable can get boring. Driving keeps your mind active and your senses alert – more than can be said for many jobs out there!

When you drive public transportation, you’re doing more than just helping the people of your city – you’re helping the city itself. ABQ Ride takes pride in being green! Efficient, clean transportation is becoming increasingly important in our growing city. We’re constantly upgrading our fleet with new technology. As a driver, you could end up behind the wheel of one of these green machines, like our 0-emission battery-powered coach! It’s good to know that you’re helping to keep Albuquerque beautiful while assisting the public at the same time.
