In an effort to quell public confusion and outcry over the Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART) project claims and deliverables, the city recently published a page on its’ website, entitled Mythbusters: Get the Facts about Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART). The document, presents a series of statements that it holds as “Myths” believed by the public, in general, yet none of the statements are actually attributed to any specific person or entity. Each of these is followed by an explanation that the author of the document believes will dispel the myth and pronounce the “truth.” The document is punctuated with a number of articles, charts, and graphs in the hopes of creating a compelling argument but generally falls short as a persuasive document that helps the public understand the program.
The CCG (Concerned Citizen’s Group) became aware of the City of Albuquerque’s “Mythbusters” document on July 22nd, 2016 and prepared a point by point response to the City’s statements.

That ART project has been a total fiasco from the start. I wonder why the city planners on this project just did not just close off traffic to Coal or Lead Ave to all vehicles except city buses. That would take care of traffic on one of those streets, & make the other into a two way traffic street which would eliminate speeders on both streets, taking care of those problems as well.
Thank you for posting this; I’ve added the link to the Mythbusters discussion that has been going on at my neighborhood area of Nextdoor.com (here’s that link: https://victoryhills.nextdoor.com/news_feed/?post=29490428
