HOUSTON – Mobility and air connectivity are key issues for the Texas, which is experiencing exceptional population growth, according to CBRE Research.
The so-called Texas Triangle – a growing region bounded by Houston to Dallas to San Antonio – is expected to see massive growth in the coming years, a challenge to mobility.
“By 2045, the Texas Triangle will add a population equivalent to two Manhattans, so mobility is a growing concern, CBRE Research said in its new Destination Texas report. “Alternative transportation will likely become a pressing issue; plans for a bullet train connecting Dallas and Houston are already underway. Texas airports have also stepped up by adding more nonstop flights, both domestic and international, making the state even more of a world-class location.”
The Lone Star State already offers a wide array of air travel options, which has been a plus for economic development in Texas, CBRE Research reported.
“Benefiting from its central U.S. geographic location, Texas has 380 operating airports and Dallas and Houston are each home to two large airports (similar to Los Angeles, New York and Chicago). Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW) and George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) each boast more than 200 nonstop destinations. This critical air connectivity supports business travel but also brings leisure traffic,” CBRE Research reported.
