Transportation from the Albuquerque airport

NRAO will provide transport between Albuquerque Airport and Socorro on Monday, May 12th. The times of these buses were set to best match the flight arrival times of the workshop participants. Be sure to check this page right before you start your trip to Socorro, as schedules might change. The current schedule is:

  • On Monday May 12: Leave airport at approximately 3:00pm, 8:30pm and 11:30 pm. Look for a Paradise Tour Bus. The greeter will direct you to the bus.
  • There will be a "sweeper" van which will pick up people who arrive between 11:30pm and midnight.
  • Due to the delays many people are experiencing, transportation will be provided on Tuesday for participants affected by these conditions.  We will keep you updated with more Information.  Please contact Terry Lopez (work: 575-835-7374 mobile: 575-835-8108) if your flight has changed.

We will have greeters at the Albuquerque airport. PLEASE CONTACT A GREETER WHEN YOU ARRIVE. The greeter will direct you where to go when the buses arrive and can assist you in other ways (e.g., look after your luggage while you go get something to eat). The greeter has a list of people that need to be picked up, if you arrange other transportation, please tell the greeter. The greeter will be on the baggage claim level, near the escalators. Look for an NRAO sign. Eric Greisen will be the primary greeter at the airport. His cellphone number is 575-418-5856. The trip takes about 1 hour 15 minutes.
