El Paso, a town of 700,000, is currently experiencing growth and a rebirth of its city center. Sharing a border with the town of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, these sister cities make up one of the largest binational areas in the world at about 2.5 million people. With tens of thousands of people crossing the border daily on foot and in car, there is a lot that can be done to improve the efficiency of crossing the border and making public transportation better. A little known fact is that El Paso currently tops the United States in text messaging. 57% of cell phone subscribers, 18 and up, send and receive text messages.
Look at El Paso as a blank slate. This is truly a city where you can make a difference by taking many different approaches.
