Regional Commuter Rail Connectivity
The Houston-Galveston Area
Council is undertaking a comprehensive regional commuter rail
connectivity study. The purpose of the study is to evaluate
the feasibility, accessibility, and connectivity requirements
of implementing commuter rail service along selected corridors
in the eight-county H-GAC region. The selected corridors for
this analysis will be identified from information gathered
from the Statewide
Freight Rail Study being conducted by the Texas Department
of Transportation. Corridors will be ranked by factors such
as cost, right of way availability, and capacities or freight
volumes. This study will look at the routing viability along
each corridor, potential ridership, potential station locations,
and the operability, logistics, and challenges associated
with connecting these corridors to the existing and proposed
- The Draft Commuter Rail Connectivity Study is now available. Click HERE to see the documents. (June 13, 2008).
