JUNE 2019 ON TIME PERFORMANCE AND RIDERSHIP

Trinity Metro TEXRail running on 30-minute schedule

Trinity Metro TEXRail has some great news for passengers. The commuter rail line between Fort Worth and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is now operating more trains. On Sunday, July 28, TEXRail began offering 10 hours of 30-minute frequency during peak hours, seven days a week. This increases the number of daily trips from 48 to 73.

Bob Baulsir, president and chief executive officer of Trinity Metro, said the increased frequency enhances the already popular service. “We always intended to increase frequency after six months of service to provide more options for commuters, travelers and other passengers,” he said. “Riders love our service, and we often heard that they were eager for more trains to run.”

Additional schedule changes include time adjustments to accommodate the increased volume of service. For example, a train that previously left at 25 minutes past the hour now leaves at 43 minutes past the hour. Visitors to Downtown Fort Worth and Fort Worth Stockyards can enjoy later service eastbound to DFW Airport, with the last train leaving Fort Worth Central Station at 12:47 a.m. (previously 11:30 p.m.) and leaving North Side Station at 12:55 a.m. (previously 11:38 p.m.). TEXRail’s first departure from DFW Airport to Fort Worth is at 4:40 a.m. (previously 4:55 a.m.). Passengers should consult the online schedule prior to departure.
