Who We Are
The Rio Metro Regional Transit District is the primary regional transit provider for Bernalillo, Sandoval and Valencia counties, offering transit service between municipalities and across county lines. Rio Metro manages the New Mexico Rail Runner Express commuter rail and operates and/or funds select bus routes in the three-county area. Rio Metro’s services also provide links to other statewide destinations and transportation markets including Santa Fe, Taos, and Socorro. The agency’s top priority is providing service that enables customers to access regional destinations, a critical transportation need since tens of thousands of trips occur each day between different towns, cities, Tribal areas, and counties in the service area.
The Mission of Rio Metro Regional Transit District is to manage a regional, integrated, multimodal public transportation network that is fiscally responsible, innovative, and efficient. Rio Metro strives to deliver service that is responsive to public need, affordable, convenient, and reliable, while providing a safe and secure atmosphere for passengers and employees.
