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 to the state
  • Develop a long-range rail investment program in passenger and freight infrastructure
  • Examine public 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 and the Texas Freight Mobility Plan as well as public input.

Email TxDOT your plan ideas as well as projects in your community that you would like more information on. TxDOT will review all comments and incorporate feedback and recommendations into the plan.
