Although the Railrunner prices are very reasonable, a discount is always appreciated; which was why I was thrilled to learn that one exists for this Albuquerque to Santa Fe rail option.
A regular day pass for transport between the two New Mexico cities is available for $6, but a special fare of $4 is offered to disabled passengers and anybody over 65.
You can buy tickets on the train or in advance. Acceptable documentation for a disabled discount includes a Medicare card, disability notification from the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Department, a letter from your doctor indicating your disability, an ABQ RIDE Honored Citizen Card or a Disabled Veteran ID card.
Access aboard the Railrunner is excellent, with wheelchair ramps at all stations, and several cars equipped with accessible restrooms and wheelchair tie-downs.
The trip takes about an hour and at just $2 each way, it’s a hard deal to beat. So hop on the Railrunner on your next trip to Albuquerque or Santa Fe. It’s a very accessible way to see both cities. Plus the graphics on the train are just plain cool. For more information, visit www.nmrailrunner.com.
