North Texans have been talking about a bullet train from Dallas to Houston for years.
Last month, Dallas Morning News weather reporter Jesus Jimenez reported that the 90-minute trip could be the cleanest and safest way to travel between the two cities, but that may come at a cost to Texas residents and landowners who need to make way for the train.
If Texas Central, the company in charge of the project, wins federal approval for environmental and safety aspects of the line this summer, groundbreaking could happen this year and, the firm says, the train could be up and running by 2026.
In the meantime, what questions do you have about the bullet train? Are you wondering about its budget, or how it will be funded? Do you wonder what parts of Texas it will run through?
We invite you to ask Curious Texas, an ongoing project from The News. The idea is simple: you ask questions and we do the reporting to find the answer.
No question is too big or small. Let’s get started.
