aThere are eight total U.S.-Mexico Ports of Entry for rail. Train service across the Tecate, CA port was suspended in 2010 due to fire damage. Four ports are in Texas where train crews are exchanged at the border, resulting in no new entry of persons into the United States. Therefore, no persons are recorded as entering the country by train at Texas Ports of Entry. There is no regularly scheduled rail passenger service across the border.

Note: The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) obtains these data on a quarterly basis from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. BTS assesses, analyzes, summarizes, and disseminates monthly and annual Border Crossing/Entry data. Most data elements are available beginning in 1994.
