Texas Rail Plan

The Texas Rail Plan addresses existing and future passenger and freight rail service in Texas.

The Transportation Commission approved the existing Texas Rail Plan on Nov. 18, 2010.

The Texas Rail Plan enables TxDOT to:

  • Take inventory and review usage of all rail lines
  • Analyze rail service goals and rail's contribution
  • Catalog and assess potential infrastructure projects
  • Examine financing issues for projects and services
  • Review rail safety improvement projects

The Texas Rail Plan is updated every five years.

Public Input

The Texas Rail Plan includes key findings from prior Texas Rail Plans, the Texas Freight Mobility Plan and public and stakeholder input.

Email TxDOT for more information on projects.
