Transportation from/to the Albuquerque airport

Please see Airport transportation page.

Commercial Shuttle/Taxi

If you are unable take advantage of the free NRAO shuttles provided above then it is possible to arrange for transportation through American Transportation (formerly known as Socorro Taxi). The cost is approximately $90 one-way per person, and arrangements will be the responsibility of the traveler. Contact American Transportation directly (jess@socorrotaxi.com, or call, inside the US, the toll-free number 1-800-991-4276 or, outside the US, 575-835-4276). A credit card will be required, and reservations must be made well in advance. Albuquerque-based taxis will sometimes agree to take passengers to Socorro. If they do and there are several passengers a taxi might be the most economical option.

Within Socorro

Shuttles will transport participants from local hotels (more information later) between 8:00 and 9:00 am each morning to NMT campus or the NRAO depending on the schedule for that day. These shuttles will be on a continuous round so just go out to the front of your hotel and wait. If you are not staying in one of those motels/hotels we recommend walking to one of them and waiting there. On the day of the hike and the VLA tour buses will pick up as the hotels at specific times. These will be announced at the workshop. On lecture days buses will leave from Workman 101 after the lectures to return to the motels.

On the days of the reception and Workshop, dinner buses will return to the motels after the reception/dinner. Stay tuned for specific times.
