Lone Star Rail gains steam; Urban Rail switches tracks

A commuter train from San Antonio to Georgetown--called Lone Star Rail---was approved by Austin City Council Thursday.

Council approved a plan to create special zones near nine train stations in the city limits. Half of increased property tax revenue in those areas will help fund the rail. The idea is to avoid asking voters to support Lone Star Rail through all property taxes.

While the Lone Star Rail is gaining steam, the Austin City Council is switching tracks on their plans for Urban Rail.

Some Urban Rail supporters thought East Austin's Mueller development made sense for the first phase of the project, but that's now off the table. So is the Lamar Boulevard corridor, which has the highest transit ridership.
