Rio Metro, the transit agency for the Albuquerque, N.M., area, has announced that the New Mexico Rail Runner Express will add the Zia Road Station to its current weekday and weekend schedules starting April 24, 2017. 

The station, located at the intersection of Zia Road and St. Francis Drive in Santa Fe, will primarily serve local residents and destinations. The station has parking and bus connections available. The weekday schedule will have minor time adjustments and the weekend schedules will reflect the additional stops at the station.  

Service on the weekends will begin 20 to 30 minutes earlier when the new schedule goes into effect on April 24.
