Keep Dallas Observer Free

Hop Aboard The Houston-to-Dallas High-Speed PowerPoint on Display Yesterday

Back to that Houston-to-Dallas bullet train for a second ...

Erik Noriega, manager of communications for the Greater Houston Partnership, was kind enough to send me Central Japan Railway Company's PowerPoint referred to below. Says Noriega, GHP just hosted Monday's event, which was attended, for the most part, by Harris County transpo officials. The purpose: to get their attention and attract their interest in a project the Japanese company says will be privately financed (for the most part) and built under the auspices of a U.S.-Japanese partnership called Lone Star High-Speed Rail LLC (which appears to have been incorporated out of a downtown Austin office in April).

Noriega cautions, as though necessary, that "this is very preliminary." Nevertheless, the presentation follows.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
