The idea of high-speed rail in our nation, long a staple of passenger travel in Japan and Europe, is starting to quickly gain momentum. The Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s Rail Research Group performs research to help determine the financial and technological feasibility of high-speed rail systems in Texas.
The Texas Department of Transportation’s Rail Division is currently undertaking two high-speed intercity passenger rail studies, focusing on the Oklahoma City to South Texas and Dallas/Fort Worth to Houston corridors. TTI is providing technical assistance to the Rail Division in support of these corridor studies.
