HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Now is the time to hear the latest plans and voice your opinions about the Texas Bullet Train. Public meetings will soon happen here in the Houston area.

The high-speed passenger train promises a 90-minute ride between Houston and Dallas with a stop in the Brazos Valley to serve the College Station area.

The route recently outlined by the Federal Railroad Administration travels through multiple Texas counties where meetings are planned starting at the end of the month. Those public hearings are planned for Dallas, Navarro, Ellis, Leon, Limestone, Freestone, and Madison counties. In the Houston area, you can attend a meeting at Woodard Elementary in Cypress on the evening of February 5th, and in Grimes County at Navasota Junior High and Waller County at Waller High School on the night of February 6th.

Staff from the Federal Railroad Administration will host the meetings. Representatives from Texas Central, the privately-funded company developing the Texas Bullet Train, will also be there to talk to residents, business and landowners.

If you can't attend a meeting in person, you can learn more about the process and send your comments online.
