We support continued expansion of the light rail and Texas central rail system with voter input and approval. Public transportation is key to economic development for the 4th largest city in the US with two international airports and one of the nations largest ports.
There has been discussion on where the Houston high speed rail station would be located, west and north west Houston have been floated as locations for the station. Another issue is how passengers would transfer from the HSR station to other mass transit like bus or light rail.
We propose that any location submitted for the HSR have voter input. Furthermore, we would suggest that all cost effective solutions be explored for connecting passengers from the HSR station to other mass transit in the city. Possibilities could be a light rail, monorail or bus that travels every 30 minutes from the HSR station to a major downtown transit bus or light rail station.
