Traffic will always be a problem no matter the option that is chosen. Uber and Lyft seem like a majority of the vehicles downtown when I’m in the area. Just trolling the area waiting for a ping to initiate a pick up.

Electric buses are interesting. ABQ has had their own set of issues https://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na...213-story.html
