The closest airport is Portales Municipal Airport, located at a distance of 5 miles from the city center of Portales, NM.
The public transportation service in Portales is provided by Portales Area Transit, which runs throughout the city and 5 miles outside Portales' city limits. Unlike the usual public bus services, Portales Area Transit works just like a cab - you call, give the address from where you want to be picked up and head where you want to go.
The only downside about this kind of service is that you have to schedule the ride by 5pm, the prior day, so if you spontaneously decide to take the bus, to get someplace in the city, it's not possible, and therefore, most people say that the best way to get around in Portales is by car, for long-distance trips, outside the city, and by bike, for short-distance trips within the city.
The regular fare per ride is $0.75 and a regular riders ticket is available for $5 (10 rides).
