The RTD Mountain Trail route provides service from the South Capitol Rail Runner Station, through Downtown Santa Fe to Fort Marcy Park and then up Hyde Park Rd. to recreational areas and businesses along NM 475 (Ten Thousand Waves) into the Santa Fe National Forest and concluding at Ski Santa Fe.
Free park and ride options for local residents will be available at the South Capitol station and on the north side of Fort Marcy Park in two parking lots north and south of the bus stop located on Murales between Old Taos Highway and Bishop’s Lodge Rd.
Effective July 1, bicycles will be allowed on the Mountain Trail route bus and our bike racks will be available on a first come, first served basis.
Service will begin during the route’s Non-Winter schedule to take advantage of the fall leaf-viewing season. The non-winter season runs from September 26 through November 25 (or upon the opening of the Ski Santa Fe season) and throughout July and August, 2016. During the non-winter season, service will be provided on two roundtrips on weekdays and three roundtrips weekends.
The Winter service will begin on Thanksgiving Day (or upon the opening of the Ski Santa Fe season) and run through April 2. During that time three roundtrips will be provided weekdays and seven roundtrips will be provided on weekends. The service will operate on a weekend schedule (seven roundtrips per day) on holidays during that time including Thanksgiving and the following day, Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, and each day through the Spring Break period of March 6 through March 17.
During the non-winter schedule, the cost to ride the Mountain Trail will be $5.00 (EXACT CHANGE REQUIRED) eastbound (uphill) and fare-free westbound (or downhill). During the winter schedule, the fare will be $5.00 per trip (EXACT CHANGE REQUIRED), eastbound or westbound. Also, during the winter schedule, a token will be provided upon boarding the eastbound bus. Ski Santa Fe will honor that token with a $5.00 discount when it’s presented to purchase lift tickets, at the ski school, gift shop, and food services, with the exception of Totemoff’s bar. A transfer token will also be provided to riders disembarking at Ten Thousand Waves allowing them to get back on the bus at no additional cost upon return of the token. Ten Thousand Waves will provide a $5.00 discount on hot tubs, spa services, food and beverages when shown the transfer token.
