Official Route Map Released for El Paso Streetcar Line

The El Paso Streetcar project has released the "Official Route" map showing the previously announced route and now showing the expected stops along the line. Construction began last year on the $97 million project and is ongoing in Downtown El Paso.

The Official Route map for the El Paso Streetcar project follows previously disclosed routes. It shows 27 total stops along the line. (www.facebook.com/elpasostreetcar)

The 4.8 miles of track will include two routes, according to previously released information. A Downtown circulator will loop through the city's center, traversing business, government, cultural, and shopping districts, in what is labeled as a "Downtown Loop" on the new map.

An "Uptown Loop" will connect Downtown to the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), with part of the route passing through the Rio Grande campus of El Paso Community College.

This portion of the line will travel north on Stanton Street, turn left on Baltimore Ave/Glory Road, and turn south on Oregon Street in the area of the Don Haskins Center at UTEP.

There will be 27 total stops along both loops, with a maintenance and storage facility located at the Downtown Transfer Center facility on Santa Fe Street south of Paisano Drive.

  1. I'm all for this streetcar project provided that it will meet its goals with passenger ridership! That is why I still continue to insist that city leaders
    tell developers to stop wasting valuable property. When they build small instead of sufficient,my point is to get more people to move downtown.
    There's not much space to build apartments in downtown so build them up,charge reasonable rent and watch them fill up.
    Then the streetcars might require more route track expansion say to like the Medical Center of the Americas along with increase ridership of the streetcars.

  3. I can't wait for this project to be completed! It'll be a tourist attraction and help revitalize downtown. I certainly hope Abraham revitalizes his properties finally or sells them to someone who will.
