Plan Given for Subway in Houston – 1967

It seems unreal and it pretty much was – in the May 20, 1967 issue of Market Square Gazette it was reported that “a revolutionary and as-yet completely undefined rapid transit system for Houston that would utilize the subway concept of transportation was unveiled Tuesday for the members of Civic Houston.

 

Meeting at the Continental Houston Motor Hotel, leaders of the Citizens Volunteer Improvement Committee of Houston (Civic Houston) heard two officials of the Southwest Transit Research Association express their hopes relative to the solution of Houston’s traffic problems.

[...]

The representatives of the Southwest Transit Research Association, describing an underground system which could be extended to meet rail facilities to other parts of the state, admitted that there is “no way you can get out of subsidizing rapid transit.” They compared it to garbage, police and fire services of a municipality.
