Am considering a move from Tucson to Santa Fe next year. I don't drive (just don't like to) and am wondering about public transportation. I want to find a decent place to live where i can use buses etc to get around. How good is the system? Here in Tucson it is non existent which means cabs which gets costly.

There is a bus system, but it is not very convenient. Depending on the route, the buses run from every 15 minutes to every hour. I know people who get along fine with it, and others who have trouble. It all depends on where you're going and from where.

OK thanks for info. I may end up relying on cabs again but at least the distances won't be as big as they are here in the Old Pueblo.

GypsyD - I moved here from there and there's no comparison. Tucson's very spread out with around 700,000 people; SF downtown is very compact, with a city population of qaround 70,000. Depending on where you decide to live in relation to where you work and recreate, you may find that you can walk or bike (if you're physically able) to wherever you need to go. As an aside, within a couple of weeks the trains will start running between Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
