About Our Presenter:
Texas Central is the company undertaking the development, design, construction, finance, and operation of the innovative new high-speed passenger train line connecting North Texas and Greater Houston, the state’s two biggest economic hubs, in less than 90 minutes, with one stop in the Brazos Valley. The system being deployed is the safest and most efficient mass transportation technology in the world, the Shinkansen N700-I Bullet Train, which has operated for more than 50 years in Japan with a perfect record of no crashes and zero passenger fatalities or injuries due to train accidents. This project gives Texans what they have been demanding – the freedom of another CHOICE when moving between the state’s two largest regions. By employing a market-led approach – without the use of taxpayer grants – this project will serve as the model for future infrastructure projects of its kind.
