Seniors are invited to explore Central New Mexico by rail for free this February, March and April. Every Wednesday, seniors age 62+ can ride any New Mexico Rail Runner Express train at no cost. This special promotion will give residents and visitors the opportunity to explore locations in Santa Fe and Albuquerque using public transportation.
“This has been such a popular promotion in the past, that we’ve decided to do it again,” said Terry Doyle, Director of the Rio Metro Regional Transit District. “We initially set out to give first time riders an opportunity to try the train, and we’ve found that many have done just that – and some have come back to try it again and apparently told their friends about it!”
