The RailRunner is not the speediest way to visit one or the other (depending upon where you're based), but is very pleasant. The fare is very reasonable, and seniors can travel for free on Weds, making driving a non-starter. Get a seat on the upper...More

An inexpensive way to travel round trip between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. For $6.00, you can sit back in an air conditioned rail car and watch the countryside roll by. Just a fun time.

Many people have a trip to Santa Fe on their bucket list. While it does have an airport, it is small and offers a limited number of flights. The closest larger airport is Albuquerque. The Railrunner is a train service that shuttles daily between Albuquerque...More
