Rider Alert: New Service Coming Soon on NM 6 / NM 47

Rio Metro Red Bus

In an effort to keep pace with growing demand for Rio Metro’s transit services in Valencia County and to offer our customers more flexibility, Rio Metro will soon introduce a new “deviated fixed route”.  

Effective June 3, 2019, bus Route 210 will provide service along NM 6 and NM 47 in the Los Lunas area, serving both designated bus stops on a regular schedule and also deviating up to 1/4 mile from the route by reservation. Route 210 is anticipated to operate every 45 minutes from 5:20 a.m. to 7:55 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Note: Existing Route 207, with some modification, will be incorporated into Route 210.  

Look for more detailed information, including a schedule, in the coming months.  


Call (505) 352-3595, Option #2 or email

Additional Information

Route 210 will provide individuals residing east of the Los Lunas Rail Runner Station with a new connection to the station. This will offer passengers taking the Rail Runner into Belen or Albuquerque more flexibility, and will reduce the need for individuals to call and schedule a trip the day before.
