About Us


TRA Logo

Texas Rail Advocates is a 501(c)3 not for profit grass roots organization.

TRA was formed in 2000 to educate and inform the public and private sector on the benefits of the then newly designated South Central High Speed Rail Corridor.

TRA has evolved into a broader educational and informational resource that covers both freight and passenger rail issues in Texas and the Southwest.

Our mission statement: To advance Texas’ economic growth and enhance the quality of life enjoyed by its people by advancing the development of rail service to its full potential as a carrier of freight and passengers.

The Board of Directors of TRA serve in a voluntary capacity.  Meetings are held on a monthly basis at the Center for Community Cooperation – Meadows Foundation in Dallas. Meeting dates are posted in the Events section on the TRA website. The public is invited to attend.

Our mailing address is Texas Rail Advocates, 800 Jaguar Lane, Dallas, Texas 75226.
