What seem to me to be a no-brainer, but I've never seen mentioned, is to construct a new freight rail line east of Austin and tie it into a state-of-the-art inter-modal transit hub for freight. That would free up the intercity rail line through downtown for the construction of a high-speed rail, light rail, or rapid transit system between Georgetown and San Antonio. Tax NAFTA to pay for the new freight line and get toxic materials out of the city.
