How does your shared-ride service work?
Service from the Albuquerque Airport to Santa Fe
Book online or over the phone at 505-474-5696 in advance to guarantee you a seat at your preferred shuttle departure time. Gather your luggage and proceed to the Shuttle Waiting Area inside the airport next to the East door just past Carousel 8. Please be prepared to check in with your driver at least 10 minutes prior to your designated pickup time. Due to security considerations, the Albuquerque Sunport does not allow us to wait outside at the curb. Our drivers park in the commercial parking lot and walk in to the airport Shuttle Waiting Area.
Service from your Santa Fe hotel, lodging, convention center, or train stations to the Albuquerque Airport
We recommend booking your ride at least 24 hours in advance. Be ready to go 5 minutes prior to your scheduled pick up time. Join the ride with other passengers going to the airport. When you arrive, our driver will drop you off right outside the Albuquerque Sunport airport entrance doors.
How many stops will the van make?
The number of stops will depend on the number of other passengers in your vehicle. Most of our vehicles seat 10 passengers. The average amount of stops within a route typically consists of five to six stops, but that may vary based on the destinations of the other passengers.
How do I know what order I’ll be dropped off?
Since we can’t guarantee the sequence of pick-up or drop-off in advance of the ride, we recommend you speak your driver directly to find out about their planned route.
How long will the trip take?
Our shuttle departure time from Santa Fe is the time we leave from the corner of Water & Sandoval, and we pick up guests at hotels around town prior to the departure. Travel time from Water & Sandoval to ABQ Sunport is approximately 75 minutes. Travel time from ABQ Sunport to Santa Fe is estimated as 75 minutes, but the exact time of dropoff at any given stop depends on the number and destination of the other passengers on the shuttle. The driver chooses the drop off order to create the best route for the maximum number of passengers.
What does riding at your own risk mean?
Riding at your own risk means that you booked with a pickup time outside of those times recommended by our system to ensure timely arrival. For customers booking pickup later than the recommended times, we are not responsible for fees resulting from a missed flight.
Where is my ride?
This is the most common question we receive from customers with an impending pickup. If it is 5 minutes after your scheduled shuttle time and the vehicle has not arrived, please call our office at 505-474-5696 and one of our customer service agents will contact the driver.
What if my flight is delayed?
If you know in advance that your flight is delayed, please call our office at 505-474-5696 so we can move you to another shuttle. If you do not find out in advance, just call us when you arrive and we will get you on the next available shuttle. We do our best to monitor inbound flights, but on days of high volume or extreme weather delays that may not be possible.
Do you offer service to Santa Fe Airfield?

Each traveler is restricted to two standard suitcases and one personal item. Since there will likely be other passengers on your shuttle, you will share luggage space with other travelers. If you are traveling with more than two pieces of luggage per person, we recommend that you consider reserving an additional seat.
Your personal items should be small enough to keep on your lap or in between your feet on the floor without interfering with the space of another passenger. Examples include a purse, laptop case, everyday backpack or small shoulder bag.
Groome Transportation’s standard luggage allowance is: two suitcases, each of which should weigh 50 pounds or less with a total linear length (sum total of the length, width, and height) of 62 inches or less. If any of passenger’s luggage exceeds 50 pounds, the passenger may be required to assist with loading the luggage, space permitting. Groome Transportation will not be liable under any circumstances for personal injuries as a result of loading, unloading, or other luggage handling for such luggage.
To avoid loss or mix-ups, we recommend that passengers ensure their luggage is tagged and identified with both the customer’s full legal name and contact information. We also recommend that all luggage be locked with TSA approved locks.
We will make every effort to safeguard and return luggage to passengers in the condition that it was when loaded on the shuttle. However, Groome Transportation will not be liable under any circumstances for damage to or loss of any luggage. Groome Transportation disclaims any liability for particularly expensive, valuable, or fragile items such as, but not limited to, computers, electronics, jewelry, banknotes, artwork, collectibles, or antiques, and strongly recommends that these items remain with passengers at all times, subject to the other policies set forth above.

Military travel is unique for temporary duty assignments (TDYs) and, therefore, Groome Transportation will allow personnel traveling for TDYs to bring the standard TDY kit which includes two duffel bags, one externally supported ruck sack and one personal bag. If additional equipment is required, please communicate that to the local office and we will do our best to accommodate on a space available basis.
Military personnel traveling with us who are moving to their next duty station (PCS) should follow the standard luggage policy and make appropriate arrangements to move any household goods.
