  • Santa Fe Branch FAQ

    Do you provide on-site parking?
    We provide complimentary parking at the Groome Transportation office located at 2400 Cerrillos Rd., Santa Fe, NM 87505.

    Do you offer residential pickups?
    We do not currently offer Home Pick-Ups from our Santa Fe Location.

    Do you offer hotel pickups?
    Yes, all Santa Fe Hotels served with confirmed reservation. Be at your pickup point 10 minutes prior to your designated pickup time. Groome Transportation is not responsible for transporting passengers who miss the van. Please remember, you must be outside the hotel for pick up. If you are not picked up by 5 minutes past your departure time, call our office immediately. Have your confirmation number ready. With this number you are guaranteed service.

    Do I need advance reservations for transportation?
    To ensure availability, we recommend at least 24 hours notice when seeking a reservation. We will do our best to accommodate customers who do not provide advance notice but service cannot be guaranteed.

    What are your Hours of Operation?
    Our call center is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Our desk at the ABQ Sunport is staffed from 9AM to 7PM every day. We can be reached at 505-474-5696.

    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 check in with us. We have a check-in desk inside the Albuquerque Sunport terminal on the baggage claim level, directly across from SW Carousel #6. Please be prepared to wait until your scheduled departure time after checking in with our counter staff. 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 check-in desk.

    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 check in at our desk when you do arrive and our desk agent 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?
    We do not offer service to / from Santa Fe Airfield at this time.
