Bullet Train To Link Dallas and Houston

from CityLab

Texas Central Railway is a private company that plans to link Dallas and Houston with a 200-mile-per-hour bullet train as soon as 2021. Chairman and CEO Richard Lawless believes the $10 billion project may be bullet trains' best hope in the United States, given Texas' flat, rural landscape, staggering growth potential, and "business-friendly approach." Lawless adds that "as city pairs, Dallas and Houston are pretty unique in the United States." They’re cities 240 miles apart, a distance Lawless describes as a "sweet spot" for high-speed rail, where it beats both air and highway travel. "The project has been progressing below the radar, very quietly, very deliberately, over the last four years plus," says Lawless. more
