Proposed bullet train could offer quick trip to Houston by 2025

Richardson resident Chip Pratt often travels by plane in his role as a telecom professional, but the prospect of a high-speed train between Dallas and Houston means he could spend less time in the air by 2025.

First announced in 2012, the train would travel as fast as 205 miles per hour, delivering commuters from

Dallas to Houston and vice-versa in 90 minutes. It would be the first high-speed rail line in North America, according to officials with Texas Central Partners, the private group developing the project.
