THE TEXAS HIGH-SPEED TRAIN
Nearly 50,000 Texans, sometimes called “super-commuters,” travel back and forth between Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth more than once a week. Many others make the trip very regularly. The approximately 240-mile high-speed rail line will offer a total travel time of less than 90 minutes, with convenient departures every 30 minutes during peak periods each day, and every hour during off-peak periods – with 6 hours reserved each night for system maintenance and inspection.
Texas Central respects and values property rights and Texas landowners. It has identified and analyzed potential routes that follow alongside existing rights of way as much as possible. Texas Central closely examined a number of such rights of way, including interstates, freight rail corridors and power and utility corridors, all with the goal of minimizing impacts on private property.
The potential alignments currently under consideration can be seen here.
We anticipate stations in Dallas/Fort Worth, the Brazos Valley and Houston will provide easy access to each region’s excellent highways, thoroughfares and expansive public transit networks.
