Luminare Posted September 2, 2015 Share Posted September 2, 2015 Across the world, the train stations are different location, and some have parking and some don't. For big areas, there are multiple stops in the Metro area, and some even have a station co-located with the airport. The California HSR is going to be using existing or new downtown stations Florida's new passenger rail, http://www.allaboardflorida.com/ "the only privately owned, operated and maintained passenger rail system in the United States" will have 4 stations: - Downtown Miami - Downtown Fort Lauderdale - Downtown West Palm Beach - Orlando International Airport Orlando's station is going to be a regional hub station. This could be an example of what Houston could do, but it could also be an example what not to do. The Florida rail project is further along, with the company closing on land for the stations and construction is underway with a target opening of 2017. Hopefully TCR can see what works and doesn't for them. Finally, I found a new use for the Astrodome - high speed rail station (this is Shanghai South Station) Astrodome is way to big, but finally someone who isn't afraid to think big! Keep it up. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
