Mexico was one of the oldest countries in Latin America to support railway expansion.
Mexico Railroad Transportation Network covers an area of 19,233 miles or 30,952 km. A Mexico Rail Map clearly shows all the important railway stations in the country and its rail transportation network.
At present, the Secretary of Communications and Transport of the country is constructing an express railroad link that will carry its commuters from Mexico City to Guadalajara, Jalisco.
The train will run at 300 km/hour, and it enables commuters to tour from Mexico City to Guadalajara in only 2 hours.
The entire plan was estimated to incur 240 billion pesos or approximately 25 billion dollars. The project is being collectively financed by the Government of Mexico and the regional private sector, which includes the richest person in the world, Carlos Helú. Carlos Helu is a business magnate in Mexico and a billionaire.
The state government of Yucatan is also sponsoring the building of a high-speed railroad line, joining the cities of Cozumel to Merida and Cancun and Chichen Itza.
