Getting To and Around Santa Fe

classycar 250x135 right
Santa Fe is located in Northern New Mexico, an hour's drive north of Albuquerque, the state's largest city and major air gateway.

The Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ) as the airport is officially known, is serviced by all of the major U.S. airlines. Flying into Albuquerque and renting a car is by far the most popular way of traveling around New Mexico. But not the only way. Train service provides access to New Mexico on a daily basis as does the bus.

The Santa Fe Municipal Airport (SAF) is open to private aircraft and American Eagle, which offers two nonstop daily flights between Dallas and Santa Fe and one nonstop daily flight between Los Angeles and Santa Fe.

Shuttle service is available from the Albuquerque airport, the Santa Fe airport and the train station which is located in Lamy, New Mexico, about 20 miles from Santa Fe. The RailRunner Express offers train service between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

Once in town, getting around is easy. Downtown Santa Fe and the surrounding historic districts are compact and most conveniently traveled on foot. For longer trips there is a local taxi service, a public transportation system, Santa Fe Trails, charter vans and limousine service. Rental cars can also be picked up in Santa Fe.
NM Rail Runner Express The New Mexico Rail Runner Express carries passengers in and out of Santa Fe between Albuquerque and points south.
