The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is developing a Texas Rail Plan to guide future actions by the public and private sectors to expand mobility of people and goods on rail, and meet federal and state legislative requirements. TxDOT values your input on the Texas Rail Plan and will be hosting public meetings to hear from Texans. This Texas Rail Plan is being coordinated with the Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan, TxDOTâ€™s look at the future of all transportation modes in Texas, also being developed this summer.
Who should attend?
YOU! We want to know your views on freight and passenger rail, current and future. Nine public meetings are being held throughout the state to inform Texans about the Texas Rail Plan and seek public input. You can learn more about rail in Texas, visit with TxDOT Rail Division staff, and offer your comments and views.
Attend this public meeting to learn more about the Texas Rail Plan, ask questions, submit comments and/or complete a brief questionnaire, or you can mail in your comments.
You can submit comments on the Texas Rail Plan website listed below by clicking on â€śSubmit Commentsâ€ť under the â€śGet Involvedâ€ť heading. Comments will be accepted through Oct. 9.
You can complete a questionnaire (available Aug. 2) online by going to the Texas Rail Plan website.
The Texas Rail Plan is led by the new TxDOT Rail Division and its Director, Bill Glavin. This process will help identify major themes and common desires for the future of rail in Texas.
