TEX Rail Plans Underway!
TEX Rail, is a 27-mile commuter rail project being developed by the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) and will be the next passenger rail service coming to Tarrant County. The service is projected to have over 15,000 daily riders using 10 rail stations at full build out.
The line begins in downtown Fort Worth at the existing T&P Station (currently served by the Trinity Railway Express commuter service) and travels through the ITC station, also in Downtown Fort Worth, continuing across Northeast Tarrant County to the City of Grapevine and into Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).
The terminus point at DFW Terminal B will be adjacent to a Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Rail Station which will also serve the airport and connect to points North and East of DFW Airport.
