Making Durango Amtrak Connections

Durango Amtrak

Buck Horn Limousine Durango offers transfers from the Grand Junction Amtrak to Durango, as well as from the Gallup and Albuquerque Amtrak stations.

Linking the California Zephyr and the Southwest Chief via Durango Colorado, rail fans also can ride the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad as part of their journey. Passengers can ride in one of our private vehicles from a Gallup, Albuquerque, or Grand Junction Amtrak to Durango. Consequently, passengers can return to the same station to continue their journey, or transfer to a different line.

Durango is in one of the most isolated areas of the US. Furthermore, it is not serviced by Amtrak or any bus lines. Visitors must travel by road or air to visit the Four Corners area, where Colorado meets the borders of New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona.

Charters for a private car start at $864.00 and also include driver gratuity. This package includes two Durango Amtrak Station transfers for up to 4 passengers. There are no per-person charges. D&SNGR tickets can be purchased separately.
