Mayor Sylvester Turner and Texas Central Partners selected the Northwest Mall as its preferred location for the Houston station of the new bullet train service coming to Texas. The area was picked because the station will have minimal impact on the environment and community while also allowing the train to primarily follow existing rights of way and connect to Metro’s Northwest Transit Center, according to the Houston Business Journal. Texas Central announced last month a number of details related to the Dallas-to-Houston bullet train, which will transport passengers between the two major cities in 90 minutes at speeds up to 205 mph.
