TxDOT is updating the Texas Rail Plan to reflect the latest rail project priorities and fulfill eligibility requirements for federal funding of rail projects. Activities include the development of policy concepts, programs and agency-specific strategies to improve the efficiency of freight movement and maintain on-time passenger service.

The rail system is a vital component of our thriving economy, safely connecting industries, ports and people without congesting highways. TxDOT can maximize the value of rail through collaboration with private and local stakeholders, and identification and facilitation of important projects.

More information, including the previous rail plan, is available on the Rail Division webpage.
