New Mexico Rail Runner Express

From passenger service on the New Mexico Rail Runner Express and Amtrak to common freight carriers like the BNSF Railway through Albuquerque and Belen, railroads are essential for New Mexico's economy and communities. Today is the start of #RailSafetyWeek. We hope you'll look and listen before crossing the tracks!

Trax says, look both ways and listen before crossing the tracks, and only cross at designated crossings. Expect a train at any time and from either direction.

Happy National Bike Month! The weather is beautiful, there are fewer cars on the roads...now is a great time to get out on your bike. And if it's been a while and your bike needs some work, bike shops are considered essential businesses and are open but do have some COVID-related limitations so you might want to check out their websites or give a call before going there.
