With 1,400 professionals converging for their annual Rail~volution conference in Dallas and the U.S. Federal government’s finalization of the Dallas to Houston bullet train corridor, this panel's topic about integrated transit systems of various speeds and the impact on living in metropolitan areas is timely. There will an exploration of ‘fast’ transportation or the bullet train, ‘medium’ speed or the DART system which is the longest light rail system in the country, and ‘slow’ or the expansion of the trolley system.
