Re: DALLAS to HOUSTON High Speed Rail

Dear Friend, (...) ...and join the thousands of Texans who want a seat on the Texas Train! For Texas, Holly Reed I've read the reports on this, but most of them are just copy-pastes of the press release. I still don't understand how this fits into the FRA approval process or how it represents a tan...

That space is eventually going to be one of the entrances for the Commerce Street D2 station (plans), so they're not doing anything with it for now.

Re: DFW rail transit maps

Looking Good! The only error I can find is that on the future transit map, you didn't put the 1700 Pacific station in the right spot (...at 1700 Pacific). Thanks!

I thought you guys might enjoy them and that they might complement the excellent urban development maps maintained by some of the people here. Feel fre...

Re: Dallas Love Field People Mover

I knew I wasn't the only person who's noticed the suspiciously slow speeds in the areas along the Orange Line with deferred stations! Carpenter Ranch and South Las Colinas in particular are excruciatingly slow to ride through. Though to be honest, all of the newer sections of DART seem to be slower...
