TEXRail is Open for Business from Fort Worth to Grapevine!
North Texas transportation officials threw a party on Dec. 31 and they weren’t celebrating the New Year. They were toasting Trinity Metro’s new 27-mile TEXRail commuter rail line that will begin service from Fort Worth to the airport on Jan. 5.
“The city deserves and will have innovative and progressive transportation,” said Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price as the train prepared to leave from the Northside station, headed to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
“This will give us a golden opportunity to look at expanding the rail going south toward the Medical District where there are nearly [40,000] jobs.”
While the train will eventually be running from the downtown Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center, officials are awaiting federal approval for improvements that were made to a rail intersection under Spur 280 before that happens.
