Proposed Texas bullet train will give airlines serious competition

(Source: Futurism, June 13, 2017)

HOUSTON Texas Central is planning to build a bullet train route that will cut between Dallas and Houston, trimming about 2 hours off the average driving time, and saving over an hour compared to air travel. The approximately 240-mile high-speed rail line will offer a total travel time of less than 90 minutes, with departures every 30 minutes during peak periods each day and every hour during off-peak periods with 6 hours reserved each night for system maintenance and inspection.
