This paper examines the impact of currency variations on monthly frequency cross border commuter flows between El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The sample period is January 1979 - July 1988. Exchange rate shocks are found to impact border crossing volumes in statistically significant manners within periods of 8 months or less for the three bridges connecting the two cities.
