Tuesday, January 20th: No January Meeting
There will be no General Meeting in January. Instead, Sierrans are encouraged to attend the Lone Star Commuter Rail EIS Scoping meeting to learn about and provide comments on future two-way commuter rail service between San Antonio and Austin. See our Community Events page for more information.
Tuesday, February 17th: Learn about Commuter Rail between San Antonio & Austin
Joe Black, Rail Manager of the Lone Star Rail District, will provide an update on progress of the LSTAR Commuter Rail between SA and Austin. It will utilize the Union Pacific track and make stops in San Marcos and New Braunfels. Progress is being made in Austin to move the project forward. San Antonio needs to become aware of this new future commuter service from San Antonio to Austin.
Our February meeting will be at EcoCentro instead of the Witte Museum. Times, locations, and speaker bios are on our Events page.
