Free Wi-Fi on buses

Trinity Metro is offering a new perk for customers: free Wi-Fi on all buses. Riders can easily join the TrinityMetroPublicWi-Fi network by using TrinityMetro as the password.

“Our customers have asked for Wi-Fi to help them stay connected on the move,” said Wayne Gensler, chief operations officer for Trinity Metro. “We listened to their feedback, and we’re happy to provide this service enhancement so everyone has better connectivity, whether it’s for keeping up with work emails, social media or texting.”

Decals are posted behind the bus operator for easy access. That way, riders can join the network after clearing the farebox area.

Free Wi-Fi is the latest in a series of service enhancements, including new seats on all buses and upgraded bus shelters.

Trinity Metro is also working on installing Wi-Fi on all TEXRail trains as an added convenience for riders.

Route 91 – North Side Station/Normandale

Buses will depart North Side Station one minute later to allow more time for passengers to transfer from TEXRail and other buses.

 

New option for loading GoPass Wallet

Trinity Metro is making it even easier for customers to use GoPass with a new option of adding cash to their accounts at local retailers. With options like 7-Eleven, CVS and Walgreens, riders can easily add funds to their GoPass accounts while out running errands at familiar stores.

The cash reload is through the VanillaDirect payment platform that gives customers the flexibility to add funds whenever it’s convenient for them.

In addition, GoPass users may utilize Apple Pay, Google Pay or a credit or debit card to add funds at anytime, anywhere.

 

TEXRail offers $5 long-term parking

Beginning Monday, Aug. 15, riders will have another advantage to choosing Trinity Metro TEXRail to the airport. Five of the TEXRail stations – three in Fort Worth and two in North Richland Hills – will have designated parking for only $5 a day.

“This is great news for travelers,” said Chris Nettles, Trinity Metro Board Member and Fort Worth City Councilmember. “Long-term parking is something riders have been wanting, and I am so happy to see Trinity Metro making it happen.”

Tito Rodriguez, Trinity Metro Vice Chair and North Richland Hills City Council Member, said, “We anticipate this will bring more ridership to the already popular TEXRail. People who currently ride will love this new option, and others who haven’t tried it may do so now that we’re offering economical parking.”

Stations in Fort Worth with long-term parking are Fort Worth T&P Station, North Side Station and Mercantile Center Station. In addition, North Richland Hills/Iron Horse Station and North Richland Hills/Smithfield Station will offer long-term parking. On average, each of the five stations will have 20 designated spots for long-term parking.

Customers will be able to make reservations and make payments on the Ace Parking app for Apple or GooglePlay.

 

 

Heat restrictions for trains expected this afternoon

With a forecasted high temperature of 110 degrees and an excessive heat warning issued by the National Weather Service, the hot weather could have an impact on Trinity Metro rail services this afternoon. The most likely scenario would be heat restrictions on speed, which means that TEXRail and Trinity Railway Express would operate at reduced speeds, which will likely generate schedule delays. The anticipated timeframe is 2-7 p.m. today. Similar conditions are expected tomorrow as well.
