Located where some say the state's wine industry started, this station blends Bernalillo's historic characteristics with the more modern, active setting of the U.S. 550/I-25 corridor. This station will have an increasingly important transportation role by providing connections between the Rail Runner and numerous bus and shuttle linkages - and will soon serve as the gateway station for future Rail Runner service north to Santa Fe.
For residents, the station area plan encourages a feeling of real community - instead of simply a parking lot and a place to catch the train. Stores and offices - lined with active sidewalks and pedestrian paseos - inspire a vibrant "sense of arrival" for visitors to the area.
Pedestrian paths, some along the acequia, will make for a comfortable and relaxing walk between the station and nearby houses, businesses, schools and of course, the annual Bernalillo Wine Festival.
