Determine which Rail Runner Express Station you will need to arrive at or depart from. Then select the route that corresponds to your flight time.

Pay Your Fare

You can ride the shuttles and 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 shuttle/bus you wish to board. For example, if you are at the Downtown Albuquerque Station / Alvarado Transportation Center (ATC) and need to go to the airport, follow the signs that direct you to Bus Bay “E”. If you are at the airport, the shuttles are located at the lower level at the west end of the shuttle island, look for the Bus Stop signs.
