GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) - Georgetown has gotten back on board with the Lone Star Rail plan.
The commuter rail plan would run a train from San Antonio, essentially parallel to I-35, through Austin and up to downtown Round Rock with stops in cities along the way.
The original plan was to have the train run to Georgetown. But just this summer, the city council opted out of the plan calling it too expensive and that not enough people would use it.
However, supporters in Georgetown have been lobbying for months for the council to reconsider.
The current membership costs close to $50,000 a year for an environmental impact study for all cities involved.
If Georgetown had remained apart from the project then the city could possibly have had to foot the entire bill for any future rail impact studies to the city.
