I know for a fact they'll drop you off there and I'm pretty sure they'll pick
you up, but there isn't a depot.  The closest bus depot is in Alamosa.  The
bus goes directly to Albuquerque from Antonito, schedule 425 and leaves at
5:05 every night from the convenience store across from the scenic train

The motel and restaurant/bar right there by the train depot are pretty good.
Real friendly, one guy from the bar bought us a beer and gave us a ride to
the pass the next day.

You may be able to get a ticket in Cuba if you know you're going to bail, but
you better call Greyhound at 1 800 229-9424

Hope this helps,
