Committee to push council for Light Rail in Fort Worth

Recommended Posts


I've got word back from one of the committee members - he is very encouraged by the response from yesterday's presentation. The entire council is in favor of putting the design and funding questions back on their official agenda. Mayor Moncrief's biggest concern was funding, but it sounds like even he seems more supportive after the committee's stressing that the streetcar project would not compete with the TRE and its dollars, but rather help strengthen it even more as a fully integraged transit system.

Whatever the outcome, light rail is now back in the city's sights. That alone is a big step forward after the abandonment of the original plan in 2001.
