City of Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne has been elected Vice Chair of the US High Speed Rail Association. The USHSR is the only organization in the United States working entirely on advancing a state-of-the-art national high speed rail network across the country.
“We are pleased Mayor Van Duyne agreed to take an active role in the Association,” said Chairman Rod Diridon, Executive Director, Mineta Transportation Institute. “The Mayor has a wealth of transportation experience and we plan to leverage her passion and vision for the future of high-speed rail to further the effort.”
The USHSR is an independent, nonprofit trade association chartered to organize and mobilize the industry with a shared vision for a 21st century, 17,000 mile national high speed rail system built in phases for completion by 2030.
“I look forward to working on advancing transportation lines across America and especially across the State of Texas,” said Van Duyne.
