      I have been riding the Santa Fe bus system which is named Santa Fe Trails for over one year. Because these is often a significant parking problem in downtown Santa Fe where the major attractions are the Santa Fe Trails bus is a good alternative during the day.

      Just about any place of major interest in this city is downtown within a half mile or less of the central plaza. Most Hotels and motels are located on the major avenue, Cerrillos Road. This area is well served by Santa Fe Trails with buses during the weekdays stopping every few


      blocks about every fifteen minutes. For one dollar you can ride all day and once you head downtown and exit at the transit center there you are within easy walking distance of all galleries and museums except Museum Hill. Exact change is required. For Museum Hill there is a special M bus that leaves from the downtown transit center on a frequent basis.

      The M bus is one of the more interesting and bourgeois buses because most of its passengers are tourists from all over the world.

      I have always found the Santa Fe Trails to be very reliable.


      • Nearly all the bus drivers are friendly and helpful. Many drivers are local and a few are from New York City. The buses are clean and comfortable with lifts for handicap access. Free schedules are available on all the buses.

        It is best to be in before dark unless you are staying at one of the high end hotels in the center of town. Santa Fe needs more police, especially on foot patrol. Women are also advised to sit as close to the front of the bus as possible, ride with a companion and do not wait alone at

        bus stops outside the center of town. There are some would be macho gentlemen in Santa Fe who now and then imbibe a little too much and then sometimes become more amorous than most female passengers would prefer. So it’s best to dress down on the bus, the less jewelry the better; and that goes for most of Santa Fe. Nevertheless in general most passengers are quite civilized, friendly and interesting.

        A nice side trip is the ride out to Santa Fe Community College which has a stunning view, great vibes and ongoing cutting edge student and faculty exhibits.
