Recap| To The Point: High Speed Rail

The North Texas Commission was honored to host Texas Central Partners CEO, Tim Keith, to speak at the latest To The Point presented by Fidelity Investments on Tuesday, August 25th.

Over breakfast at the Omni Mandalay, Keith explained the plans of the Texas Central Partners to make a 90-minute train ride from North Texas to Houston possible. With over $75 million in investments already, it’s a vision that’s already in the works, having been given an approved line of movement by the  Federal Railroad Administration, with which they hope to have the least environmental impact possible.

The line will also have as little impact on landowners and other means of transportation as possible, Keith said, with overhead bridges and pass-through to allow movement of livestock, equipment and vehicles. Their goal is to keep goods and people moving.

When tickets go on sale in 2021, Keith explained that the high speed rail will meet the luxury room of a first-class airline seat, with the affordability of a coach-class ticket. Texas Central Partners and other investors will be working to compare costs between ground and air transportation between North Texas and Houston.
