Plans for high-speed rail between Dallas and Fort Worth, with a stop in Arlington, move forward

In 15 to 20 years, you might be able to hop on a train in Dallas and arrive in downtown Fort Worth 10 minutes later.

Plans to develop high-speed transportation linking the two cities are moving forward. This weekend, the North Central Texas Council of Governments will host a public meeting in Arlington to provide the latest details and gather feedback.

Transportation planners have studied more than 40 possible routes and numerous technologies to bring high-speed transportation to the region, said Dan Lamers, the agency’s senior program manager.

They have narrowed the list of technologies to two possibilities: traditional high-speed rail and hyperloop.

Traditional high-speed trains, already used in Europe and Asia, travel roughly 200 mph.
