the downtown area, the easiest way to reach the UNM campus is to use the
Rapid Ride bus service. Go to the Alvarado Transportation Center (ATC,
located at the corner of 1st and Central Avenue), and take
either the east-bound #766 (Red Line) or the east-bound #777 (Green Line). You will get off at the second stop,
which is at the corner of Central Avenue and Cornell Avenue (near “M” on
the bottom of the campus map provided above). Rapid Ride busses depart from the ATC
every 10 minutes or so, and the fare is $1 each way.
We have secured a special group
rate of $89/night (+ tax) for a single or double room at the Doubletree in downtown Albuquerque. To place reservations, participants should call the
