Why was a study needed?
The Southeast Fort Worth area represents the largest ridership of The T. Recognizing this, The T Board of Directors identified passenger service to this area as a top priority for the agency. Although the construction and start of any potential rail service is years in the making, this study evaluated the different options and possibilities.
What did the study determine?
The feasibility study determined the best technology, routes and alignments for passenger rail in Southeast Fort Worth. Based on comments from the community meetings, surveys from stakeholders and The T riders, and a technical evaluation of realistic transportation options were developed and presented to The T Board of Directors.
How was this study different from the City of Fort Worth Modern Streetcar Planning and Design Study?
The Southeast Fort Worth Rail Feasibility Study was commissioned by The T, focused solely on the Southeast Fort Worth area and evaluated various rail options.
What was the study area?
The feasibility study area was bound by I-30 to the north; Everman Parkway to the south; I-35W to the west and the Fort Worth city limits to the east.
What was the timeline?
Three community meetings were scheduled and held.
Survey response collections ended May 2, 2011.
Final recommendations were presented to The T Board of Directors in June.
