Business Membership Program

The Ports-to-Plains Corridor was founded in 1995 as a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy group consisting of community and business leaders from more than 275 communities with a mission to advocate for a robust international transportation network and promote economic security and prosperity. Now more than 20 years later, the Ports-to-Plains Alliance brings together four federally designated High Priority Corridors on the National Highway System stretching from Mexico to Canada. Representatives from the Ports-to-Plains Corridor, the Heartland Expressway, the Theodore Roosevelt Expressway and the northern part of the Camino Real work collaboratively to advocate for increased funding for a better and safer highway system that supports business and industrial efficiency and productivity.

The Ports-to-Plains Alliance represents the interests of its member transportation corridors starting in Laredo, TX and running through Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado; joins the Heartland Expressway running through northern Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming; the Theodore Roosevelt Expressway running through South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana; and finally connecting with the Camino Real in Alberta, CA. Collectively, the US corridors traverse more than 3,088 miles in the Western United States. Over the past two decades, Ports-to-Plains Alliance members have seen billions of dollars in federal and state funding for highway expansion and improvements along the corridors.

The Ports-to-Plains Alliance is extending an invitation to business and industry to become a member of the organization. Member support, both philosophical and financial, is crucial to the success of the Alliance.
