At Kewa Pueblo, passengers may catch the San Felipe Hollywood Casino Shuttle that runs daily. Bus service is also available to towns like Cochiti Lake and Rio Rancho. Sandoval is a county stop, with metro bus service to many of the same towns as in Kewa. The Bernalillo station is in the heart of that historic city. It has a large parking lot but no commuter bus service. Sandia Pueblo is small. This is the stop to catch the shuttle to the Sandia Resort and Casino that meets every train.
Los Ranchos is in the heart of the Journal Center business district, home to the Cottonwood Mall, Century 24 Theater and companies such as Intel. Commuter bus service is available to Los Alamos and Downtown Albuquerque. Montano is small and provides bus service to Los Alamos. Downtown Albuquerque shares station space with Amtrak and Greyhound and is the gateway to thousands of cities across America.
Bernalillo, another county station, provides bus service to Albuquerque, while Isleta Pueblo connects to the Isleta Resort and Casino shuttle, which also meets every train.
