“Good way to move between SF & ABQ!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

The RailRunner is the train that connects Belen (town South of ABQ) to Santa Fe. Developed as a commuter line, the train is popular with families on weekends and in the summer. Great way to expose kids to train travel. Also a great way to show out-of-towners, who may not get off the freeways what the neighborhoods and countryside of the area are like. Compared to East Coast trains, it is very inexpensive.

“Weekend in Santa Fe”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

What a fun way to see the sites between ABQ and Santa Fe. Good transportation at the other end. Lots to do at the rail yard and within walking distance of the station.

“Why drive when you can ride?”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

This commuter railway is only about five years old but has managed to become quite an asset to Albuquerque, Santa Fe and many other towns in between these cities and even south of Albuquerque.
The day trip ticket is only $8.00 on $7.00 for seniors. The chair cars were very clean and some had small tables between the seats - nice for a little work space. The train did take a little longer than driving your own car but you don't have to put up with traffic or find and pay for parking. Plus you could read, work, take a nap or merely take in the scenery. I really enjoyed the trip and would definitely do it again

The Rail Runner is clean and efficient. Great getaway from Albuquerque without having to jump in the car.
