Texas High-Speed Train: Improving Lives and Benefitting Communities

Creating Tens of Thousands of Meaningful jobs

At Texas Central Railroad, we look forward to creating tens of thousands of meaningful jobs for Texas residents and businesses through the nation’s first high-speed train system. And, we are committed to diversity and inclusion at all levels of the organization, which is why the Business and Workforce Opportunity Program (BWOP) was created and adopted by our board of directors. 

In addition to the creation of career opportunities, this project will allow us to invest money back into our local communities, providing a substantial and lasting effect on our state’s economy that will generate significant financial benefits to the state far beyond just profit.

Our business and workforce programs are one of myriad ways that Texas Central is demonstrating its commitment to enhancing communities touched by this project.  Fair, inclusive business practices and diversity of thought, partners and ideas will contribute to the success of this groundbreaking endeavor.

— Carlos Aguilar, CEO, Texas Central

A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

At the core of the BWOP is commitment to diversity and inclusion, which spurs collaborative decision-making processes and increases organizational effectiveness.  Texas Central believes diversity of thought, background and ethnicity are vital to this project’s sustained success and is actively working to create a culture that elevates this belief. The BWOP mission is to promote the value and development of Texas-based, small, rural, and minority-, woman-, veteran- and disabled individual-owned businesses by offering fair and competitive opportunities to bid and participate in building and operating the Texas high-speed train.

This transformative project will serve as a model for national infrastructure and regional planning and will strengthen the national economy. We hope you share our eagerness as we move from the planning phase and into execution in 2020.  Visit our web pages often for updates on how to stay connected and join us in the movement to positively impact our local communities through the build-out of the high-speed train.
