Laredo is a southern Texas community with a truly authentic identity. Located on the border of Mexico and the United States, it is a flavorful city that has survived a long history of conflict and friendship between the two countries. Today, Laredo is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States and quite possibly the best place to experience Tex-Mex cuisine and Spanish speaking culture.
El Metro is Laredo’s bus system, offering a fleet of over forty-seven fixed route buses, two trolleys and eighteen demand-response \El Lift\ vans. However, despite its thorough transit service, Laredo is best navigated by car. The sprawling city covers such a wide area that it is easiest to get around by car. Countless drivers pass through Laredo every day on the well-known Pan American Highway, a road known to US citizens as I-35 that stretches from Central America to Canada.
