Texas High Speed Rail Corp brings Arkansas developments

This came to my attention and, while I do not readily see 200 mph passenger trains through Arkansas, it is certainly needed in the Dallas-FW-Houston-San Antonio region.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Texas High-Speed Rail and Transportation Corporation (THSRTC), in conjunction with South Central High-Speed Rail and Transportation Authority, Inc (the “Authority”) to hold an important COMMUNITY AND PRESS BRIEFING on Thursday, May 6, 2010 at 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM at the Patrick Henry Hays Senior Center in the City of North Little Rock, Arkansas.  Elected officials, including City of North Little Rock Mayor Patrick Hays, will provide valuable updates to invited media, community leaders, and members of the general public on the work of THSRTC and the Authority to bring safe, fast, efficient high-speed intercity passenger rail capable of operating at speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour to the South Central and Gulf Coast High-Speed Rail Corridors.  Make plans to attend and hear of the latest exciting developments in the work of THSRTC to make this transformational project a reality, and how each community along the proposed Corridor can help.

About THSRTC

The THSRTC was formed in 2002 as a grassroots effort to develop high-speed intercity passenger rail in the state of Texas.  THSRTC enjoys the enthusiastic support of 25 members of Congress from four states and 43 members of the state legislatures in Texas and Arkansas.  Owned and operated by cities, counties, and rail districts in Texas and Arkansas, THSRTC advocates for the development of world-class high-speed intercity passenger rail along the South Central and Gulf Coast High-Speed Rail Corridors capable of operating at speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour.  The first phase in this development will be the 440-mile Texas T-Bone High-Speed Rail Corridor, which will connect Texas’ four major population centers and the 16 million Texans that live and work in and between them with the safest, fastest, and most efficient high-speed intercity passenger rail system in the world.
