Plan Your Trip
Determine which New Mexico Rail Runner Express Station you will need to arrive at or depart from. Then select the bus route that corresponds to your flight time.
Pay Your Fare
You can ride the airport buses for free if you purchase your Rail Runner ticket in advance online or on our mobile app. If you don't already have your train ticket you can pay the driver a $1 fare each way.
Find Your Way
Follow signs directing you to the bus you wish to board. For example, if you are at the Downtown Albuquerque Station / Alvarado Transportation Center and need to go to the airport, follow the signs that direct you to Bus Bay "E." If you are at the airport, the buses are located at the lower level at the west end of the shuttle island - look for the Bus Stop signs.
Board Your Shuttle or Bus
ABQ RIDE buses are white and green with iconic New Mexican images on the sides, such as balloons and the Sandia Peak tram. Bus route numbers are visible on the front and side of each bus.
