Written by 

New Mexico's Rail Runner Express, next week will begin serving a new station Kewa Pueblo Station, located on tribal land between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, N.M.

Augusta Meyers of the Mid-Region Council of Governments said passengers will see only small changes in the Rail Runner's operating schedule when the station opens.  The new station is the 12 on the growing system, which runs approximately 100 miles between Santa Fe and Belen, N.M.

A ceremonial ribbon-cutting for the station is set to occur March 23. The station will offer free parking and about 40 spaces.

RailRunner began operations in July 2006, and service was extended to Santa Fe in December 2008.
