Bus & Cab Connections
A first class or luxury bus trip from Ciudad Juarez to Chihuahua City takes about 4.5 hours, including a 45 minute rest stop: The cost is 200p.
After arriving in Juarez, I took a cab from the bus terminal to the U.S. border. The trip took 25 minutes, and cost 70p. Once I reached the international bridge, it took me 30 minutes to walk across the border and pass through U.S. Customs. It is not a short walk, so if you're loaded down with luggage and the weather is bad, a cross-border bus would be best. You'll have to wait longer to cross, but you'll be much more comfortable.
Omnibus de Mexico has a cross-border bus into El Paso every hour. Tickets are sold in the Juarez bus station at Window 17, for 50p.
