Bajio Train Intercity Train

The BajIo Interurban Train is a project to connect Mexico City with the most important passenger traffic corridor in the country through approximately 418 kilometers of railways or existing rights. It will create a joint passenger logistics system to, in its first stage, connect Mexico City with the capital cities of the states of Queretaro and Guanajuato. Additionally, due to its behavior as a regional train, the service will be extended to smaller communities in these states, as well as in the state of Hidalgo and in the north of the State of Mexico within the area still considered as part of the Metropolitan Zone of the Valley of Mexico, one of the most populated metropolitan areas in the world.

The second stage would conclude the vision of the Bajio Train, which proposes to extend the service to the cities of Aguascalientes and San Luis Potosi, which with Queretaro and Leon make up the four most important cities in the Bajio area. The second stage even proposes taking the service to Guadalajara, capital of the state of Jalisco which belongs to the third most populous metropolitan area in the country.
