Lubbock Economic Development Alliance

Located on the south plains of West Texas, Lubbock has long been known as the “Hub City.” The nickname is related to Lubbock’s accessible location on the crossroads of Interstate 27 and four major U.S. highways, in the central time zone, equal-distance to both coasts, allowing for ease of U.S. distribution. Within the city, you will find a well-planned transportation network, with an average commute time of 16 minutes.
