Transportation

Accessibility

Schertz proximity to two major cities, two major airports, and the interchange of two major interstate highways is a distinct geographical advantage.  Whether your business moves goods by road, air or sea, the City of Schertz offers a clear competitive advantage.  Schertz is ideally situated to take advantage of the strong growth in international commerce resulting from falling trade barriers between the United States, Mexico, Canada, and the countries of Central America.

Interstate

Located to the northeast of San Antonio along the IH-35 corridor and adjacent to IH-10, Schertz’ unique location offers business an ideal interstate interface to transport goods and products.  IH-35, also known as “the NAFTA Superhighway,” stretches from Laredo, Texas to Duluth, Minnesota, and the city’s business parks allow for easy access to this thoroughfare.  On Schertz’ southern border, I-10 presents companies with an additional option to access markets through major ports in Houston, New Orleans, or Los Angeles.

Air

The San Antonio International Airport connects Schertz with the rest of the world.  Located approximately 20 minutes from Schertz, twelve air carriers operate 260 daily domestic and international departures and arrivals from San Antonio International Airport.  In 2011, the airport accommodated nearly 8.2 million passengers and is well positioned to meet the aviation needs of the region over the next decade.

The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport provides the City of Schertz with a second option in domestic and international air travel. Located 60 miles from Schertz, nine carriers provide direct, same plane service to 72 destinations, and nonstop service to 37 destinations
