The Real AZ Corridor is the Gateway to America’s Energy Future

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Arizona’s energy and economic development corridor is also the gateway to America’s renewable energy future.

And you can get there from here.

Few regions offer access to transportation assets and natural resources. The Real AZ Corridor offers Interstate access and frontage, a strong state highway network and a location that is within four hours of Phoenix and Albuquerque, within easy reach of the energy-hungry California and Nevada markets and less than eight hours from the Mexican border.

Commercial rail service via the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway connects the Real AZ Corridor with national markets. Passenger rail service serves the region, with an Amtrak station in Winslow.

Nine public airports serve the Real AZ Corridor, including daily commercial passenger service to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport from Show Low Regional Airport.

The Real AZ Corridor is a gateway that also serves the regional shopping needs of the adjoining Navajo, Hopi and White Mountain Apache Tribe Nations.
