PASSENGER TRAIN INFORMATION

Due to extraordinary conditions, MEXLIST strongly suggests that Americans and other foreign nationals contemplating travel in Mexico should study the U.S. Department of State's Mexico Travel Advisory or the equivalents from their own governments.

MEXLIST does not arrange passenger travel. However, because we receive frequent inquiries, we try to provide information. This page contains the most complete information available to us at any given time. The last update was on May 16, 2018. Since frequencies, schedules, and entire operations are subject to change, MEXLIST cannot guarantee the current accuracy of such information. Please submit any updates and corrections.

Almost all passenger trains in Mexico were discontinued in January 2000, when the Mexican federal government stopped subsidizing them. Only one scheduled intercity passenger route remains, as described in the next paragraph. Please note that there are no scheduled international passenger trains connecting Mexico with the USA, Guatemala, or Belize. The only scheduled international ground transportation into Mexico is by motorcoach (bus).

Ferromex operates excellent intercity trains of modern equipment on the Chepe® route. (This is the famed "Copper Canyon" route.) There is one Chepe Express train daily in each direction between Los Mochis, Sinaloa, and Creel, Chihuahua, that offers "executive" and "tourist" class services. There are three Chepe Regional trains per week in each direction between Chihuahua, Chihuahua, and Los Mochis, Sinaloa, that offer "regional tourist" class service. Schedules, fares, and other information are available via the link in this paragraph.

The following are short-distance tour train operations within Mexico:
