Rail Transport in Mexico

Mexico has a freight 🚃 system owned by the national government and operated by various entities under concessions (charters) granted by the national government. The railway system provides freight and passenger service throughout the country (the majority of the service is freight-oriented), connecting major industrial centers with ports and with rail connections at the United States border. Passenger rail services were limited to a number of tourist trains between 1997, when Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Mexico suspended service, and 2008, when Ferrocarril Suburbano de la Zona Metropolitana de Mexico inaugurated Mexico’s first commuter rail service between Mexico City and the State of Mexico. This is not including the Mexico City Metro, which started service in 1969.
