Texas Central Railway, a privately funded project aimed at bringing high-speed rail travel to the Lone Star State, hopes to revolutionize the U.S. transportation system by partnering with Central Japan Railway Co. to build a bullet train line between Dallas and Houston by 2021.

“If we could get this line built from Dallas to Houston, I think everyone in America would want the kind of high-speed rail we would have,” former U.S. Ambassador to Japan and senior adviser for TCR Thomas Schieffer said in a recent interview. “It has transformed Japan and I think it can transform the United States.”
