Trinity Metro and MHMR Tarrant partner for apprentice program

Trinity Metro and My Health My Resources (MHMR) Tarrant have teamed up for a job training program that helps participants gain valuable experience while providing great service to enhance the customer experience. The 20-week apprenticeship program pairs six part-time helpers from MHMR with Trinity Metro staff in the agency’s custodial and facilities departments.

“This has been a fantastic partnership for the apprentices,” said Stephanie Gallagher, MHMR apprentice coordinator.” In just a short time, I can see so much change in them. They are more confident and prouder of the work they are doing. I could not ask for a better experience for my team.”

Apprentices work three days a week with Trinity Metro staff so they can learn firsthand about important job skills and ways to provide a nice environment for transit customers.

“Working with the MHMR team has been a real pleasure,” said Tom Crouch, assistant director of facilities. “Their eagerness to learn and their commitment to the training program is admirable.”

The experience has been great for the apprentices, who shared their feedback. Nicholas said, “This what I want to do. I love working at Trinity Metro.” Another member of the team, Marvin, said, “I like cleaning and pulling trash here. This place is great.”

As part of the program, MHMR team members took classes on soft-skills techniques and resume building. They also came to Trinity Metro’s headquarters for interviews prior to beginning their jobs.

Dallas Brown, the job coach for the apprentices, has already noticed how well everyone is doing. “I love the teamwork that I see the apprentices developing. Every day, they are eager to work, and when they finish one job, they cannot wait to get to the next one.”

Trinity Metro hosts grand-opening event for new train station

(FORT WORTH, TEXAS) April 5, 2024 – A crowd of transit enthusiasts gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Trinity Lakes Station in east Fort Worth. The station is one of 10 stops for Trinity Railway Express (TRE), the commuter rail line offering service between Fort Worth and Dallas.

Trinity Metro was joined by representatives of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Tarrant County Commissioners Court, Fort Worth City Council and other leaders and stakeholders across North Texas. The celebration included a grand-opening ceremony and a ribbon-cutting to commemorate the new train station for Trinity Railway Express.

Richard Andreski, President and CEO of Trinity Metro, summarized the significance of the event by saying, “This train station is about mobility; it’s about connecting communities,” he said. “What this station represents is the future of our city. People depend on reliable transportation to get to work, to visit family and to participate in their community – and rail transit is a big part of that.”

Trinity Lakes Station also offers TRE travelers connectivity to two Trinity Metro bus routes, including service to Tarrant County College Northeast Campus. The new station is part of Trinity Lakes, a 1,600-acre master planned community that includes retail and residential transit-oriented development.

Michael Morris, Director of Transportation for North Central Texas Council of Governments, stressed the importance of celebrating the teamwork involved in making Trinity Lakes Station a reality.

“Stop and celebrate what you have as a Fort Worth family and how you deliver projects,” he said.

Morris also talked about the impact of investment in public transportation.

“When you invest in transit, you’re investing in hope, you’re investing in air quality, you’re investing in cities, you’re investing in economic development, and you’re creating an opportunity to change the world, one station at a time.”

Additional speakers were: Laura Wallace, Director of Program Management and Project Oversight, FTA Region 6; Gyna Bivens, Fort Worth Mayor Pro Tem, District 5 Fort Worth City Council Member, and Chair of the Regional Transportation Council; Jeff Davis, Chair of Trinity Metro Board of Directors; and Ken Newell, Trinity Lakes Developer.

Safety tips for viewing the eclipse

During the afternoon of Monday, April 8, we will experience a Total Solar Eclipse around 1:41 p.m. While this is a very rare event, there are many safety items to consider.

  • View the sun through eclipse glasses or a handheld solar viewer during the partial-eclipse phases before and after totality.
  • You can view the eclipse directly without proper eye protection only when the moon completely obscures the sun’s bright face – during the brief and spectacular period known as totality. (You’ll know it’s safe when you can no longer see any part of the sun through eclipse glasses or a solar viewer.)
  • As soon as you see even a little bit of the bright sun reappear after totality, immediately put your eclipse glasses back on or use a handheld solar viewer to look at the sun.
  • DO NOT look at the sun through a camera lens, telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while wearing eclipse glasses or using a handheld solar viewer — the concentrated solar rays will cause serious eye injury. 

If you are driving during the event:

  • Ensure your vehicle headlights are on;
  • DO NOT wear eclipse glasses while driving;
  • DO NOT take pictures or video while driving;
  • DO NOT pull over or stop on the roadway and/or shoulder to view the eclipse;
  • Be aware of increased pedestrian traffic.

Consider riding one of Trinity Metro’s buses to enjoy the event at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden or the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Trinity Metro has partnered with them to provide safe transit for people traveling to locations with eclipse-related events. For details, go to RIDETRINITYMETRO.org/ECLIPSE.

Modified services during inclement weather

To the extent possible, operations will try to follow regular routes. It is not unusual for some portion of the service area to experience icy conditions while another portion is clear. Operations supervisors will survey the situation and determine if it is safe to use regular routing. However, there are many segments of routes that may be considered too hazardous to traverse in icy conditions and staff have proactively worked out detours to avoid them. Most hazards involve steep slopes and bridges, however, other hazards may include areas that remain shaded thus slowing the ice melt, narrow residential streets with on-street parking, or even shallow slopes with stops where there is insufficient traction to overcome both gravity and inertia.  Detours are described below.

Weather Detours for Buses

(Routes not listed below will run regular route.)

Service will operate on an hourly schedule with the following exceptions:

  • There will be no service on Molly the Trolley.
  • There will be no service on The Dash.
  • Routes 23 may operate later in the day if Tarrant County College classes begin later in the morning depending on if sufficient melting occurs and resources are available.

Express Routes 61, 63, 65, or 66 will not operate during Severe Winter Weather.
