About West Texas

Lubbock is the “Hub” of a 26-county Region

Considered to be at the center of the South Plains, the area is located between the Permian Basin to the south and the Texas Panhandle to the north.

At 295,999 people, Lubbock is the 11th largest city in Texas, the 2nd largest west of Interstate 35, and is projected to grow 6.2 percent through 2024.

With a median age of 30, the city’s residents are youthful but hardworking. Featuring a regional population base of more than 600,000 people, Lubbock’s size affords businesses access to dedicated community leaders and personalized service, while providing you with a pipeline of personnel to fill workforce needs.

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.
