The region’s central location along the 2000 mile border has made El Paso a natural transportation hub, with international rail service provided by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF), Union Pacific (UP) and Ferromex. Interstate access (I-10) connects our region to California and Florida, and to the Rocky Mountain states all the way to the Canadian border, US-54 provides both east/west and north/south access to the United States. You’ll also find two international airports, El Paso International Airport (EPIA) and Abraham Gonzalez International Airport (AGIA), and five international border crossings connecting the U.S. to México.

Railroad

Rail providers in the region include:

Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) operates one of the largest railroad networks in North America, with about 32,000 route miles in 28 U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. For more than 150 years, BNSF Railway has been quietly delivering cars, coal, clothing, games, and nearly anything else found in homes and businesses. When the predecessors to BNSF Railway first started operations, they were building a nation by shrinking America's borders. Today, the focus is on using speed, agility, and resourcefulness to help expand the global marketplace for goods and services.

Union Pacific (UP) is an operating subsidiary of Union Pacific Corporation. It is the largest railroad in North America, operating in the western two-thirds of the United States. The railroad serves 23 states, linking every major West Coast and Gulf Coast port and provides service to the east through its four major gateways in Chicago, St. Louis, Memphis and New Orleans. Additionally, Union Pacific operates key north/south corridors and is the only railroad to serve all six major gateways to Mexico. UP also interchanges traffic with the Canadian rail systems. UP has one of the most diversified commodity mixes in the industry, including chemicals, coal, food and food products, forest products, grain and grain products, intermodal, metals and minerals, and automobiles and parts.
