ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Rail Runner is discounting fares 75% starting Monday, April 18, and running through at least July 31. All one-way, day pass, and monthly pass fares will be reduced. This means it will now cost $2 for a day pass to travel all six zones or $15 for a monthly pass. Reduced fares do not apply to annual train passes.
