Six more ART buses arrive in Albuquerque; four still to come
By Maddy Hayden / Journal Staff Writer
Updated: Monday, February 19th, 2018 at 10:57pm

Quote:
Six Albuquerque Rapid Transit buses traveling in a convoy made the nearly 800-mile drive from Lancaster, Calif., to their new home in Albuquerque this weekend, arriving late Sunday night.

The buses are 60 feet long and fully electric. Trucks pulling generators followed the convoy to charge the buses during the trip from Lancaster, Calif.

Hernandez said the trip took around two-and-a-half days to complete, with the buses stopping every 210 miles to charge batteries.

City says ART project under investigation
By Ryan Boetel / Journal Staff Writer
Updated: Wednesday, February 21st, 2018 at 3:38pm

"ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The city of Albuquerque on Wednesday confirmed there is an ongoing investigation into the Albuquerque Rapid Transit system. The investigation, being done by city Inspector General David Harper, is examining the process and planning for the system. That includes a review of the funding and procurement related to construction and the buses, according to a statement from the city. The statement said the investigation’s findings will be made public once it is completed."

One aspect of the ART debacle that has not been mentioned much is landowners along the route.

I wonder how easy it would be to find instances where developers snapped up lots along the route where the business closed, not because they wanted to move in, but because they expected land values to skyrocket after ART was completed.

Then to cross-reference these developers with their political donations.. might make for some fascinating reading.

The joke may end up being on the speculators- with Albuquerque's economy still on the ropes, a crime wave, and a lemon of a bus fleet, they may end up losing their shirts in spite of what seemed like a savvy bet.

Buying property along Central has to be a dumb move. I read a very interesting statistical analysis of crime in the ABQ area, and almost 30% of all area crime occurs within a 1/2 mile of Central. Until that changes nothing good will come of Central. Especially since it showed a high concentration of repeat offenders living within that 1/2 mile of Central.
Google "ABQ i-Team Report", it's a real eye-opener.

And over 50% of all shoplifting occurs within a 1/2 mile of businesses.

The 30% statistic is meaningless, for it could likewise apply to either paradise or Detroit. Central is where the city goes when they're not at home. Absolute numbers should be the target, rather than some mystery percentage (eliminating all crime except that near Central would push the 30% to 100% but it would still be a worthwhile accomplishment).

Took a lot more googling than necessary. If you're referring to the KOB report (maybe 5th or 6th on the links returned), it was mildly interesting.
