Is high speed rail on track for Texas?

February 3rd, 2009

Pardon the pun, but is Texas on track to have high speed rail service between major cities? Could be. Even Governor Perry thinks so. The Star-Telegram editorializes…

Texas High Speed Rail and Transportation Corporation has a website all about it, where they list a “legislative caucus” including bipartisan members of the Texas House and Senate.

Getting folks out of cars (and off of I-35 and I-45) and onto trains can improve Texas air quality by removing polluting, largely single-passenger vehicles off of congested roadways.
