Amtrak's Southwest Chief stops in Lamy, a short drive south of Santa Fe, on its route from Chicago to Los Angeles via Kansas City; other New Mexico stops include Raton, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, and Gallup daily. In 2006, the state's first-ever commuter train line, the New Mexico Rail Runner Express, began serving the north-central part of the state. Service is from Belén, south of Albuquerque, to Santa Fe, with numerous stops in between. The Rail Runner offers a scenic, efficient alternative to reaching Santa Fe from the airport in Albuquerque (a shuttle bus operates between Albuquerque's Downtown train station and the airport).
