ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Monday marks the first day of operation for the New Mexico Rail Runner’s 12th train station.
The $2.5 million Kewa Pueblo station includes a platform with two canopies, a bus drop-off area, lighting and some 47 parking spaces.
The Rio Metro Regional Transit District is providing a bus connection that will connect to Pena Blanca, Algodones and Bernalillo as well as Kewa, Cochiti and Santa Ana pueblos.
The station between Albuquerque and Santa Fe was dedicated last week by dignitaries that included pueblo Gov. Tony Tortalita and state Transportation Secretary Gary Giron.
The Rail Runner commuter train averages about 4,500 commuters a day along a 100-mile corridor between Belen and Santa Fe. The full schedule is here.
