The potential high-speed rail line between Dallas and Houston, Texas received a major political endorsement last week from the Mayors of Houston, Dallas, and Forth Worth. The three mayors expressed their support for the proposed bullet train that would take 90 minutes to travel between the two cities. Although Texas Central Railway, a private, for-profit Texas company, will pay for the entire project with private funds and not rely on government subsidies, government cooperation and innovation throughout the planning phase could go a long way towards making the train line successful.
