Brenda: I'm perplexed. I phoned ABQ Trolley for you but could only get a recording of how to purchase tickets online. I googled ABQ TROLLEY ROUTE MAP but found nothing on the website about the route map. That should tell you something. My review was not flattering. Albuquerque is not a huge city. Most everything is walking distance (for those without ambulation issues) from Central Avenue, where there is a fabulous bus system, and I believe a streetcar now travels along that route. (Construction was ongoing when I was there in July.) I stayed at Econo Lodge, which had a total makeover last summer. It's two blocks from Old Town Plaza, Turquoise Museum, San Felipe Church, Old Town, and about five blocks from the Aquarium/Botanical Gardens. Along Central Avenue, you'll find Holocaust/Intolerance Museum (highly recommended!), 66 Diner, The Aquarium, Biological Park, Botanical Gardens (all three in the same complex for one price, a daylong excursion for about $8), University Complex, Route 66/Central Ave. If you can purchase a daylong bus ticket for about $3, why pay ABQ Trolley ten times that amount? True, ABQ Trolley has an informative narrative, but if your goal is to visit the dozen main attractions I reviewed for TripAdvisor, city bus transportation is the best bet. There are, however, sites that Trolley may access, such as ABQ Balloon Park/Museum. I had only four days there, and there were no hot air balloons to be seen when I was there.
