Last updated: 9 March 2022

68 million Mexican pesos (34 M from the state of Nuevo León and 34 M from the federal government) were allocated in September 2020 to a suburban train pre-project study in the metropolitan area of Monterrey. The project, as well as future raiway developments, could significantly reduce CO2 emissions from road traffic, linked to Monterrey's size (it is northern Mexico’s largest city) and to its geographic proximity to the border. Construction, to be financed through Public-Private Partnership arrangements, should start in 2024.
