BELL LAUNCHES HIGH SPEED RAIL CALCULATOR
Austin, TX - Yesterday State Representative Cecil Bell, Jr. launched the Texas High Speed Rail Calculator. It is the first publicly available tool to measure the profit/loss of Texas Central's proposed high speed rail. The high speed rail will run from Houston to Dallas/Ft.Worth, with one stop in Brazos Valley. The rail calculator gives Texans direct and intimate access to determine the train's viability, answering these questions:
• How much will people pay for a one way train fare?
• How many travelers will have to use the train at that fare to be viable?
• Can TCR entice frequent flyers to take the train, instead?
The rail calculator can be found on Rep. Bell's campaign website.
Is the train profitable? You be the judge.
