   Regional Rail. . .What is it? Where does it go? Where does it stop? When will it start?
    The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (also known as “The T”) has been developing a regional rail plan for the Tarrant County area since 2006.
The planned Southwest-to-Northeast Rail Corridor is part of The T’s 2005 Strategic Plan to develop a new rapid regional rail service to provide addi-
tional transportation options for people living, working, and visiting in Tarrant
County.
    The proposed system will transport passengers along a rail line from south-
west Fort Worth to northeast Tarrant County into D/FW International Airport.
This system would include numerous stations along this route. Proposed sta-
tions could include: D/FW International Airport, D/FW Airport North, Grape-
vine, Colleyville, North Richland Hills (2), Richland Hills (existing), Haltom
City, Beach Street, North Side Station, North Main, Seventh Street, Medical
Center, TCU/Berry, I-20 Granbury, and Sycamore School Road.
     The DFW Regional Rail plan would include The T Plan, the DART Plan,
along with the Denton County Transportation Authority Plan. The T’s type of
equipment would be on existing rail lines and would not be like the DART light
rail system. Proposed plans call for the Southwest-to-Northeast route to be in
service to D/FW International Airport as early as 2012, with a DART route to
D/FW in 2013.
     There are still a lot of options and questions, including “quiet zones”, addi-
tional stations, and overall cost.

High Speed Rail for Texans
    The Texas High Speed Rail and Transportation Corporation (THSRTC) is a not-for-profit
corporation consisting of local transportation and elected officials from across the State in a
grassroots, collaborative effort to realize the first-ever high-speed rail passenger system in
Texas.
   What is High Speed Rail? A transportation system that travels 180-200 mph with Steel-
Wheel technology and up to 300 mph with Mag-Levitation technology. Both systems are in
place and being used by millions of riders a day in Germany, France, Spain, Great Britain,
Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China. This mode of transportation has a 40 year track record of
safety and on time travel.
   The THSRTC concept is to provide service from airport to airport along a system that
would connect DFW Airport to Temple, Austin and San Antonio, with a line from Temple to
College Station/Bryan and on to Houston’s Bush International Airport. This configuration
