Texas Rail Plan - Public Involvement

The Transportation Commission approved the Texas Rail Plan on Nov. 18, 2010. The new Texas Rail Plan addresses future and existing passenger and freight rail service in Texas.

The plan accomplishes the following:

  • Inventories and reviews all rail lines
  • Analyzes rail service goals and rail's contribution to the state
  • Develops a long-range rail investment program in freight and passenger infrastructure
  • Examines public financing issues for projects and service
  • Reviews rail safety improvement projects

The rail plan is updated every five years.

Public Input

Stakeholder input was vital to the development of a sound rail plan. Public outreach meetings were scheduled throughout the state to provide individuals an opportunity to learn more about the plan and provide their input.
