Dotted with 12 stations, the New Mexico Rail Runner Express’s 100 miles of track stretches between Belen and Santa Fe. Passengers can bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks aboard as they roll to hub-like stations, which provide easy access to Santa Fe Plaza, Bio Park, and bustling Santa Fe neighborhoods such as Nob Hill, Uptown, and Old Town. On Saturdays, artists from the University of New Mexico Theater Department spice up 506 and 509 train rides with classic Shakespeare performances that feature the ghost of Hamlet’s father wearing a conductor’s cap.
Before you zip down to the Old Town starting line, you'll have a chance to train on the Segway, learning its quirks and how to fulfill your need for blisteringly moderate speed. After watching a video and trying a quick test spin, you'll set out for a dizzying circuit of downtown's paramounts and semi-paramounts, including the Natural History Museum, the Rio Grande Zoo, the Rio Grande itself, the bosque, the botanic gardens, Tingley Beach, and more. Each Segway bears a small handlebar bag for cameras, purses, or smoke bombs.
Scoot Over Albuquerque maintains a fleet of scooters that are 49 cubic centimeters, and patrons can rent them by the hour, the day, the week, or even the month. All that's required is a valid driver's license and the same basic skills used while riding a bike. Patrons can cruise down Route 66, toward the mountains, or to the casinos. New Mexico's laws don't require riders to wear helmets, but Scoot Over Albuquerque encourages the practice and stocks them in several colors.
