  • Bullet trains are coming to Texas.
  • DART Rail has two big projects in work: The Cotton Belt & second downtown light rail line.
  • TEXRail starts operating next year between Fort Worth & DFW Airport.

From RPA February 16, 2018 newsletter:

 

Make Plans NOW To Attend RPA’s Spring 2018 Advocacy Summit and ‘Day on The Hill’: Annual Congressional Reception and Meeting - Sunday, April 15 to Wednesday, April 18, 2018

  • RPA’s ‘Day on The Hill’ is Tuesday, April 17. The Annual RPA Congressional Reception will be held that evening from 5:30pm-7:30pm in the Capitol Visitors Center.

This is THE opportunity of the year for rail passenger advocates to have their voices heard directly by the decision makers on Capitol Hill. With drastic cuts being proposed for Amtrak and successful grant programs such TIGER being targeted for elimination, it is VITAL that rail advocates make this year’s Summit and ‘Day on The Hill’ the largest event ever. We need to flood ‘The Hill’ with our message that passenger rail matters! Please join in this effort.
