The Rio Metro Regional Transit District is committed to encouraging the use of alternative modes of transportation in order to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality in central New Mexico.
Our Smart Business Partnership Program provides employers from Belen to Santa Fe with resources, tools and incentives to reduce the use of single occupant vehicles and create awareness of public transportation among employees.
Becoming a Smart Business Partner makes your organization a more attractive place to work, can save your organization money and helps the environment. It also makes it easier for your employees to get to work while spending less time and money stuck in traffic.
Businesses can become Gold, Silver or Bronze Level Smart Business Partners. We can help you determine the right combination of commuter benefits for your organization. Employers who participate will receive rewards as well as recognition for being a Smart Business Partner.
Rewards include recognition on our website, in an annual ad, on the train and more.
The Department of Veterans Affairs in Albuquerque has been a Silver Level Smart Business Partner (SBP) since July of 2014. The Albuquerque Regional Office processes claims for benefits for the over 169,000 veterans currently residing in New Mexico. They also provide employment workshops for veterans and their dependents, helping them to obtain and maintain employment. Department employees take advantage of Rio Metro’s transportation services, including individuals that travel to work from Santa Fe and Los Lunas on the Rail Runner. Veterans visiting the Department take advantage of our train and buses at no charge by obtaining our Veterans Annual Pass for veterans with a VA medical card. Thank you, Department of Veterans Affairs, for being a great Smart Business Partner.
