What Time Is It In Texas? There Are 2 Time Zones

There are, in total, 254 counties in Texas. Of these 254 counties, only El Paso County and Hudspeth County are 100% in the Mountain Time Zone along with parts of Culberson County. With this knowledge, we can begin to see that about 98% of Texas is located in the Central Time Zone.

The reason why El Paso County, Hudspeth County and parts of Culberson County are located in the Mountain Time Zone is because they are located close to either New Mexico or Chihuahua, Mexico. Both of these states are in the Mountain Time Zone.
