A high-speed train between North Texas and Houston offers Texans more than quick relief from traffic-choked highways.
The privately developed project will be an economic powerhouse, creating local jobs, generating community tax revenue and creating Texas’ newest industry.
Despite facts to the contrary, some people continue to misrepresent how Texas Central will operate the rail system.
I’m referring to Crystal Wright’s July 10 piece, “Is rail company lying about building Texas bullet train without subsidies?” in which she called Texas “a particularly bad venue” for high-speed rail.
Without any data to back up her claim, she neglects to acknowledge the rigorous review of more than 90 city pairs throughout the U.S. that initially identified the strength of a high-speed passenger train linking North Texas and Houston.
