The New Mexico Rail Runner Express is a commuter rail system serving the metropolitan area of Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is administered by the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) and the Mid Region Council of Governments (MRCOG), a regional government planning association. The system is in Phase I of planned development, operating on an existing BNSF Railway right of way from Belen to Bernalillo.

History

In 2003, the concept of passenger rail serving the Central New Mexico corridor had been discussed for decades, but it wasn't until August of that year when New Mexico governor Bill Richardson announced that his administration was going to pursue the implementation of commuter rail service. Later that same year, grants were given to NMDOT and MRCOG to begin the effort, and the New Mexico State Legislature passed Governor Richardson's Investment Partnership (GRIP), a transportation improvement package. The Rail Runner was one of the projects in that bill. This is a list of Governors of the state of New Mexico (est. ... William Blaine Bill Richardson (born November 15, 1947) is an American politician and a member of the Democratic Party. ... The New Mexico Legislature is the state legislature of the U.S. state of New Mexico. ...


Over the next few years, NMDOT and MRCOG developed a strategy for implementing rail service. In 2005 the name "Rail Runner", a play on the name of New Mexico's state bird the roadrunner, and a branding scheme was chosen. The cars and locomotives were received throughout the year of 2005 and groundbreaking for the first Rail Runner station took place on October 31, 2005. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... Species The roadrunners are two species of bird in the genus Geococcyx of the cuckoo family, Cuculidae, native to North and Central America. ... is the 304th day of the year (305th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


During this time the state also made negotiations with BNSF for usage of the railroad track. After assessing the needs of the track, the State of New Mexico purchased the railroad corridor from Belen to the New Mexico-Colorado border from BNSF, to ensure that commuter trains would always get the right-of-way and have priority over freight trains in the corridor.


The Rail Runner officially went into service on July 14, 2006, serving the Downtown Albuquerque, Los Ranchos, and Sandoval County stations. On December 11, 2006 the Los Lunas station opened, and on February 2, 2007 the Belen station opened, extending the line to its southern end. In April 2007, two more stations opened: Bernalillo County/International Sunport and Downtown Bernalillo.[1] is the 195th day of the year (196th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... December 11 is the 345th day of the year (346th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 33rd day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...


Justification

The Central New Mexico corridor, which is home to half the state's population, is anchored by Santa Fe (the state capital) and Albuquerque (the largest city and economic hub). The two cities are connected by a single four-lane interstate highway, I-25. Within the Albuquerque metro area, the urbanized parts of Valencia County are separated from Albuquerque by a Native American Pueblo. In fact, there are seven Pueblos along the entire corridor, making the addition of new roadways or the expansion of current capacity unlikely. Interstate Highways in the lower 48 states. ... Interstate 25 is an interstate highway in the western United States. ... Valencia County is a county located in the state of New Mexico. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Pueblo Indians . ...


The high real-estate prices in Santa Fe mean that many of the people who work there must commute from the Albuquerque metro area. Furthermore, the capital is home to many of the state's cultural institutions and tourist attractions, and most out-of-state visitors are forced to make the 60-mile journey from the Albuquerque International Sunport by car. As the population of the region grows, commute times are expected to increase 80% on some routes by 2025, making the introduction of additional forms of transportation a priority to local governments. Albuquerque International Sunport (IATA: ABQ, ICAO: KABQ) is a public airport located three miles (5 km) southeast of the central business district (CBD) of Albuquerque, a city in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, USA. The airports IATA airport code ABQ is also Amtraks 3-letter code for its rail...


Criticism

Critics of the Rail Runner system believe that funds would be better spent widening Interstate 25 between Santa Fe and Tramway Boulevard in Albuquerque and also widening I-25 south of the Sunport to Belen. (This was determined to be most likely impossible as the Pueblos I-25 passes through have refused permission for road widening.) Preliminary estimates indicate that the service will operate at a deficit, requiring up to $10 million in government subsidies annually.[2] Still, given that roads require high construction costs as well as expensive maintenance and that a widened I-25 would almost certainly not be a toll road, subsidies would likely be similar if not more. Interstate 25 (abbreviated I-25) is an interstate highway in the western United States. ...

Ridership

For the first few months of service between Albuquerque and Bernalillo the fares were free, to attract riders to the service. On the first day of service the Rail Runner carried 4,122 passengers, and ridership climbed through the first few weeks of operation, averaging at around 4,000 to 4,500 riders a day and once peaking at 6,000 riders a day.[3] On August 14, 2006 barely a month after the start of service, the Rail Runner received its 100,000th passenger. is the 226th day of the year (227th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


As many of the riders in the early weeks of service were not commuters, but people "trying out" the train because it was new, ridership gradually declined after the initial weeks of service.[4] August ridership dropped to around 2,500 to 3,000 riders a day, and then down to 2,100 to 2,500 riders a day in September. Despite the drop, the Rail Runner received its 200,000th passenger on October 13, 2006. is the 286th day of the year (287th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


In November, the free service ended on the Sandoval section of the line and ridership dropped to around 1,000 passengers a day. But when the Los Lunas and Belen stations opened ridership nearly doubled, bringing it up to around 1,800 passengers a day. The Rail Runner received its 300,000th passenger on February 22, 2007. Free service on the Belen section of the line ended April 1, 2007, and a new zone fare structure went into effect. is the 53rd day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 91st day of the year (92nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


As of summer 2007, ridership has held steady at around 2,500 passengers per day. Expectations are that ridership will continue to increase, with rising gasoline prices. The Rail Runner got its 400,000th passenger on May 10 and its 500,000th passenger on July 5, 2007. is the 130th day of the year (131st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 186th day of the year (187th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Future plans

Phase II

Phase II is the extension of the line to Santa Fe. Using the existing BNSF track, which is filled with sharp curves, would require the train to slow to 15 miles per hour (24 km/h) in some places, so new tracks will need to be laid to produce travel times comparable to the automobile. The new route will use existing track from Bernalillo to the base of La Bajada hill, south of Santa Fe. It will then run on new track in the I-25 median into Santa Fe. The line is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2008.


Montaño station

MRCOG is looking into building a new station in Albuquerque on Montaño Road, which lies between the current Downtown Albuquerque and the Los Ranchos/Journal Center stations.


Incidents

  • On April 5, 2007, a northbound train ran through a wildfire on the Isleta Pueblo reservation. No one was hurt and no equipment was damaged, but officials soon tried to find out why no one received notification of the blaze until the incident actually occurred.[5]
  • On the evening of August 24, 2007, a southbound train hit a vehicle at a private grade crossing south of Los Lunas. Two people in the vehicle were killed. No one aboard the train was injured. So far, it appears that the Rail Runner personnel followed procedure.[6]
