Route 140 will go right next to your work.
Without doing transfers that means you could choose any place along San Mateo or Jefferson between Osuna and Alameda. Depending on what you consider a reasonable commute there is quite a selection there.
Here is the route information: http://www.cabq.gov/transit/document...141wkd_rev.pdf
I don't really have an recommendations as it has been awhile since I rented an apartment, but I lived on San Mateo at different places between Montgomery and Jefferson for many years and never had a problem. I wouldn't call it safe, but I wouldn't call it unsafe either. I walked to and from the bars at night many times without any worries.
