MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study is to provide a comprehensive overview of the Texas-Mexico transborder transportation system. The trade relationship between the United States and Mexico is extremely important. Two-way trade in 1988 totaled $44 billion, with much of it passing along the 1,200-mile-long Texas-Mexico border. As a result, the modal operations (motor carriers, rail, air, and ocean transport) and supporting infrastructure (highways and bridges, rail terminals and track, airports, and seaports) that comprise the Texas-Mexico transborder transportation system are important to the economic vitality of both nations.
