Ground Transport to Albuquerque


Transportation from Albuquerque to Socorro on Wednesday, August 22nd

Participants should generally fly into Albuquerque International Airport; several options are then available to get to Socorro. The drive takes about 80 minutes by bus. Please let us know your travel plans!!

NEW! Since very few (6 of 100) participants requested it, NRAO will NOT be providing transportation to/from the airport. This is partly because over 40 people are renting cars. We have e-mailed the six who were planning on taking the NRAO bus, with information on others arriving at nearly the same time who will have rental cars. There will also be a small "sweeper van" leaving the airport around 11pm on Wednesday 22aug01, for anyone who somehow winds up stranded.

If you were planning on taking the NRAO bus please let us know as soon as possible. Many participants are taking rental cars, and there is also a commercial shuttle available
