A Trolley And A Dream: Texas Border City Aims To Boost Ties With Mexico

A Trolley And A Dream: Texas Border City Aims To Boost Ties With Mexico
- The dream is not as far-fetched as it may seem: From 1949 to 1974, streetcars made daily jaunts between the two cities. During its heyday, the service averaged more than 600 trips a day. Construction is already well underway for the first leg, which will stay within the confines of El Paso. The second cross-border leg is still in the discussion stage but the momentum is real.
Thousands of “hardworking Mexican national shoppers took their dollars and pesos and spent it in American businesses,” says El Paso City Representative Peter Svarzbein, 36, who grew up in the Southwest Texan city and recalls a time when American-Mexican relations were far more honored and encouraged than today’s news headlines would suggest.

When US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer calls these trade talks (pdf) an effort at “modernization,” one pictures a contractor talking about fixing a small leak in the bathroom. But when the walls come down and the pipes are exposed, little problems can multiply. That leak turns out to be over-pressure in the water heater, which must be replaced. Now your septic tank is overflowing into the neighbor’s yard. And soon, you are enmeshed in a total, and expensive, plumbing overhaul.
