New Bus Route between Downtown Albuquerque and Belen

Designed for Hours When Rail Runner Isn’t Operating

Rio Metro RTD has started a new bus route between the Alvarado Transportation Center and Belen. Route #208 provides morning and midday bus service on weekdays between the ATC and Belen with stops in Los Lunas, Peralta, Bosque Farms, and the Pueblo of Isleta.

Route #208 features three northbound trips arriving at the ATC at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and three southbound trips departing the ATC at 9:35 a.m., 11:05 a.m. and 1:32 p.m. Bus #208 shares Bus Bay F at the Alvarado with Route #53-Isleta.

Regular one way fare is $1 per zone (Downtown Albuquerque to Belen is two zones). Reduced fare (for children 10-17, students with a valid Student ID, Seniors 62+, Medicare card holders and mobility impaired) is 50 cents per zone.

#208 bridges Belen and Downtown Albuquerque in between hours the Rail Runner isn’t operating.
