In Texas, we do big things – blaze new trails. From inventing the semi-conductor to putting a man on the moon, Texas is a place where innovation and ingenuity flourish, which is why Texas is the perfect place for the United States’ first ever privately-developed high-speed rail system.
Once constructed, this project, connecting North Texas and Houston in less than 90 minutes, has the potential to transform mass transportation in Texas and serve as the model for future infrastructure projects of its kind. What sets this historic project apart from similar projects in other states though is that Texas’ rail system will be 100% privately developed. It will not take federal construction grants or operational subsidies of any kind.
By taking this unique approach, the project will be designed and developed with all of the focus on building the best project possible for all Texans without having to burden the taxpayer.
