Burleson planning for eventual commuter rail service

Commuter rail service from Fort Worth to Cleburne is 20 to 30 years away, but community leaders and government officials are already planning for the inevitable growth and development.

Officials from Burleson, the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority are moving forward with plans for a proposed transit station west of downtown Burleson, at the future intersection of Alsbury Boulevard and Hulen Street, west of Texas 174.

Last week, those attending a meeting at Burleson’s City Hall were encouraged to suggest ideas for the station’s appearance and nearby development. They were also asked to describe how they now use transportation and how they would use transit in the future.

Burleson Mayor Ken Shetter said the pace of growth is “unsustainable without commuter rail in place to get people to their jobs in Fort Worth and Dallas.”
