(Oklahoma City-AP) -- State lawmakers are looking into high speed passenger rail service between Oklahoma City and Tulsa as part of the state's future transportation network.

The study outlining the benefits and costs of the rail was presented to the Senate Transportation Committee Wednesday by University of Oklahoma professor Richard Marshment.

Currently, there is no passenger rail service between Oklahoma City and Tulsa, but be necessary with the expected growth of 2-million people over the next 25 years.

High-speed service could cost about $900-million and would take nine years to build.
