With automobiles subject to spontaneous emotional breakdowns and bicycles taking flight in a return to their alien mother ship, trains are more reliable than ever. Get from point A to point B without extraterrestrial interference with today's Groupon: for $3, you get one all-zone day pass (up to a $9 value) for the New Mexico Rail Runner Express. You may also use your rail pass as a bus pass ($6 value). Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Students 9 and under ride for free.

The New Mexico Rail Runner Express ferries fare-payers across 100 miles of the Land of Enchantment, with 12 stations located along a railroaded route from Santa Fe to Belen. With your all-zone day pass ($9), you'll enjoy unlimited travel on the trains each day. The deal also includes shuttle service from the Santa Fe Depot to the Santa Fe Plaza, where restaurants and shops happily lure sojourners into Venus fly traps of vittles and value, and free bus passes for ABQ Ride, Rio Metro, and Santa Fe Trails. Slide up to Santa Fe for an afternoon to decipher the incomprehensible language of the City Different, visit Albuquerque for an in-depth exploration of the gardens and zoos at Albuquerque Biological Park, or be drawn like a mustachioed moth to the Route 66 neon signs at Nob Hill. Trains leave throughout the day, so check the railroad's schedule to find the time that works best for you and your fellow Richard Trevithick enthusiasts.

The New Mexico Rail Runner Express sometimes doubles as a setting for iambic pentameter-boasting entertainment, with Shakespeare on the Rail performances by theater students from the University of New Mexico held on Saturdays in August, allowing passengers to enjoy treachery and deceit as they pull into downtown Albuquerque. Skip out on crowded car lanes and enjoy scenic mobility with your passes for the New Mexico Rail Runner Express.
