Downtown Calexico’s port of entry is one of busiest ports in the nation with an estimated 20,000 pedestrians crossing the border daily into Imperial Valley from Mexico to work, attend school or shop. The number of crossers at the downtown POE is projected to increase with the planned expansion of the international border crossing. Many of those crossers use public transportation to access their final destination and it is anticipated that a new, conveniently located transportation center will better accommodate existing and projected rider demand. Additionally, it is also expected that a new facility will better serve local riders as well and potentially relieve traffic congestion in the downtown area. The feasibility study was conducted and finalized on October 23, 2014.
