Know Before You Go
When you’re on the go – and you gotta go – it’s good to know the important how-to information for using the TEXRail bathroom. From the outside, a green button means the bathroom is available; red means it’s occupied. When you’re in the bathroom, the green light means the door is unlocked. If the light is red, the door is locked.
If you’re heading to the airport, think outside the box and leave your car at home. TEXRail is the best and most economical way to get to the airport, so ask someone to drop you off at the nearest station or take one of our bus routes that connects with a TEXRail station.
For commuters and day trippers, we offer free parking at all stations except for Fort Worth Central Station and DFW Airport’s Terminal B. The maximum length of parking at the other seven stations is 20 hours to accommodate long shifts and overnight shifts. Anyone who leaves a car for longer than 20 hours risks having the vehicle towed. The stations are monitored by security personnel and cameras.
If you’re looking for station addresses, you can find them on Google or on the TEXRail map page.
Service dogs accompanying customers with disabilities or their trainers are permitted on TEXRail. Passengers may also bring a small pet in a travel carrier.
If you’re bringing any food or drink on the train, be sure all consumables are in sealed containers. We want everyone to have a clean and enjoyable train ride.
The TEXRail plan divides the commuter rail route into two segments. Segment 2 was completed first, with 27 miles of the route running from downtown Fort Worth to DFW Airport’s Terminal B. Segment 1 would run from the Fort Worth T&P Station to southwest Fort Worth. Completion of the extension is contingent upon capital funding.
Upon arrival at the DFW Airport Terminal B station, passengers make their way inside Terminal B, via entry B30, where American Airlines passengers can check their bags. American Airlines passengers, along with those without checked baggage, can then pass through security and ride Skylink to their departure terminal. All other passengers can use Terminal Link to travel to their departure terminal. Terminal Link buses can be accessed on the upper level of Terminal B in marked areas. Terminal A is a short walk from TEXRail’s Terminal B station on the lower level, which offers the same services for all passengers. For more information, consult the DFW Airport website. Arriving passengers should go to Terminal B and exit at B30 to access TEXRail.

- The quiet car is the first car on the front of the train. Because of the train’s bidirectional design, the quiet car could be the last car on the train. It just depends which direction the train is traveling. Look for the quiet car decals to make sure you are in the correct location. The quiet car designation gives passengers the opportunity to sit in an area where they can read or work quietly – or just relax.
