Arlington voices support for high-speed rail but won't join a transportation authority yet

Arlington -- With mounting pressure to commit to a high-speed rail line between Dallas and Fort Worth, city officials said they are exploring forming a local government corporation with the other cities along the proposed route.

Mayor Jeff Williams said the city is committed to high-speed rail, but he stopped short of agreeing to join a local transportation authority such as Dallas Area Rapid Transit or the Fort Worth Transportation Authority.

The local government corporation would include Fort Worth, Dallas, Grand Prairie and Arlington.

"The City Council commits to become a founding member of a local government corporation, formed to complete high-speed rail service in North Texas," Williams said in a statement. "Once it becomes clear high-speed rail is definitely going to happen, the City Council will call for an election regarding membership on one of the regional transportation authorities."
