It looks like Texas Central Partners and Federal Railroad Administration have some explaining to do. Look closely at the FRA reports…same agency, same year, two different projects, same city, two very different population projections. The largest number is being used to show potential ridership in order to attract investors for TCP’s Dallas Houston HSR. And their numbers suggest the population of both metro areas will double by 2035.
Who is making up these numbers? Which report should investors, the public and elected officials believe?
