Taos, a small town located in the northern part of the state of New Mexico, is an ideal destination for art and culture lovers; it combines historic architecture, galleries, and museums showcasing regional artwork and it’s a must-visit if you’re travelling in the wider area. You can reach Taos even if you’re flying to Albuquerque Airport; the journey takes a couple of hours but it will be worth it. The fastest transportation option to get there is taking an airport shuttle from Albuquerque to Taos; despite the higher cost, it will take you directly to your destination in about 2 hours and 30 minutes. A more budget-friendly option is getting from Albuquerque Airport to Taos using public transport. There is no direct connection so you’ll first need to get from ABQ Airport to Santa Fe; from there, there are direct bus routes between Santa Fe and Taos, operating all week long.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Albuquerque at the same price as a regular taxi.
