Texas Central Partners, LLC (Texas Central) is a private company bringing a transformational project to Texas that advances the economy, respects Texan values and keeps our state on track for future growth. Texas Central will deploy Central Japan Railway Company’s (JRC) “N700-I Bullet” high-speed rail system based on their “Shinkansen” system that has been refined over more than 50 years of operation into the most reliable, comfortable and safe high-speed rail system in the world. Nearly 50,000 Texans, sometimes called “super-commuters,” travel back and forth between Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth more than once a week. Many others make the trip very regularly. The approximately 240-mile high-speed rail line will offer a total travel time of less than 90 minutes, with convenient departures every 30 minutes during peak periods each day, and every hour during off-peak periods – with 6 hours reserved each night for system maintenance and inspection. Texas Central has identified and analyzed potential routes that follow alongside existing rights of way. Texas Central closely examined many such rights of way, including interstates, freight rail corridors and power and utility corridors, all with the goal of minimizing impacts on private property. They anticipate stations in Dallas/Fort Worth, the Brazos Valley and Houston will provide easy access to each region’s excellent highways, thoroughfares and expansive public transit networks. Mr. Moore will expand our knowledge of this exciting project for our region during his dinner meeting talk.
Michael J. Moore, Regional Vice-President (Houston), Texas Central Partners, LLC.
