TXDOT SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT FROM CORPUS CHRISTI, HARLINGEN, LAREDO, SAN ANTONIO ABOUT POSSIBILITY OF TEXAS-OKLAHOMA PASSENGER RAIL
TxDOT kicks off study with public meetings to research viability of passenger rail line


WHEN/WHERE:

All meetings run from 6 to 8 p.m.
• April 1 -- San Antonio -- Windcrest Civic Center, 9310 Jim Seal Dr.
• April 2 -- Corpus Christi -- TxDOT Offices, 1701 S. Padre Island Dr.
• April 3 -- Laredo -- TxDOT Offices, 1817 Bob Bullock Ave.
• April 4 -- Harlingen -- Harlingen City Hall, 502 E. Tyler Ave.

Background -- The federally-funded Texas-Oklahoma Passenger Rail Study (TOPRS) will evaluate existing passenger rail services in an 850-mile corridor from Oklahoma City to south Texas as a potential future transportation option that can help reduce demands on the state’s roadways, particularly along the highly-congested I-35. These open houses are the first step in a very inclusive process aimed at gathering public input for the study. The above open houses are four of 12 such meetings taking place in March and April along the corridor. The public may view all of the open house locations/dates and provide comments online at www.TXOKrail.org.

For media inquiries, contact TxDOT Media Relations at MediaRelations@txdot.gov or
(512) 463-8700.

Build a rail system that will only fill up once a year is crazy. OU and TEXAS only play once a year.

It's time for passenger rail to be privatized, maybe bid out for a government contract. Amtrash is stinking up the joint. Texas is far too large not to have reliable passenger rail travel. It would take a lot of cars off ... More ›
