Rail Runner security boosted

SANTA FE, N.M. — The New Mexico Rail Runner Express is getting additional security.

The Rio Metro Regional Transit District says it has contracted with a company for a pilot project to have security officers patrol platforms, parking lots and some trains.

The district says the project is intended to provide an extra level of security for train passengers and crews and to help check passengers’ tickets.

The rail service runs between Belen and Santa Fe.
