SANTA FE, N.M. — New Mexico Rail Runner began commuter train service April 24 to the Zia Road Station in Santa Fe. The station was built more than seven years ago for more than $1 million, but remained closed because of issues over private land surrounding it and parking.

The station is located at the intersection of Zia Road and St. Francis Drive in Santa Fe. There is no parking available, but passengers can be dropped off at a designated location.

At a dedication ceremony at the station Monday, community leaders talked about linking central New Mexico.

There have been minor adjustments in Rail Runner schedules to reflect the additional stop at the station.
