New transit volunteer program

Anyone looking for more opportunities to spend time outdoors has a new option – volunteer to be a transit ambassador for Trinity Metro. As an extension of the agency’s ENVOY team, volunteers work alongside employees to help transit customers by providing information and making sure they have a positive transit experience.

Detra Whitmore, vice president of customer experience, said the volunteer program is a win-win for everyone.

“We have so many transit enthusiasts who are looking for a way to help,” Whitmore said. “Volunteering as an ENVOY is a perfect way for them to participate – and they are providing additional assistance for our customers.”

Volunteers have a variety of opportunities to choose from, including conducting customer surveys, providing travel training, working job fairs or other community events, or greeting customers at rail stations or transfer centers – to name a few.

“Shifts are flexible,” Whitmore said. “We work around the volunteers’ schedule to find a good fit. This is a great opportunity for individuals or a group service project.”

If you are interested in applying to be a Volunteer Transit ENVOY, fill out the online application. It’s quick and easy!

About Trinity Metro

Trinity Metro is a regional transportation system that provides public transportation to meet the mobility needs in Tarrant County. The agency offers connections throughout the North Central Texas region, providing passenger trips on buses, TEXRail, ACCESS paratransit, ZIPZONEs, vanpools and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE), a 34-mile commuter rail line jointly owned and operated with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). Trinity Metro is the sole owner and operator of TEXRail, a 27-mile commuter rail line that runs between downtown Fort Worth and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal B.

It’s time to get back on board

(FORT WORTH, TX – June 16, 2021) – School is out, workers are returning to the office and everyone is ready for a summer vacation. Whether you’re commuting, day-tripping or heading to the airport, you can get there on public transportation.

The health and safety of passengers and operators are very important, and Trinity Metro has worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to keep riders safe from infection. Through contactless payment and enhanced cleaning protocols, the agency continually strives to maintain the health and safety of everyone who rides. An extension of that is the ongoing federal mandate that requires passengers and employees to wear masks when on board vehicles or when at a station.

Additionally, Trinity Metro utilizes an advanced air filtration process that is an ionizing based system to cleanse the return air flow on units. The ionizer device “ionizes” the viral atoms and by being ionized, they are able to be trapped by the filter, which is changed regularly.

Another way to enhance cleanliness is using backpack electrostatic sprayers that are used inside vehicles after use. After spraying, each vehicle has to air dry for at least two hours before returning to service.

Where can you go?

Trinity Metro’s bus network makes it easy to commute to work or to visit local attractions, such as the Fort Worth Stockyards, the Fort Worth Cultural District or the Fort Worth Zoo.

Hop on TEXRail for a fun day trip to Fort Worth, North Richland Hills or Grapevine. If you’re heading to the airport, TEXRail is the best way to get there. You’ll arrive at Terminal B after a relaxing ride that will deliver you on time for just $2.50. If your flight is departing from a different terminal, just hop on Skylink after you go through security.

Riding Trinity Railway Express is a convenient option for traveling between Fort Worth and Dallas, especially for events at the American Airlines Center.

For easy connections, try one of the ZIPZONE options for on-demand ridesharing. The timing couldn’t be better because rides are free through the end of June. Check out your choices for Southside, Mercantile, South Tarrant and Alliance ZIPZONE services.

 

Masks required through Sept. 13

(FORT WORTH, TX – May 18, 2021) – Trinity Metro will continue following the federal mandate that requires passengers and employees to wear face masks in the agency’s facilities and on board all buses, trains and other public transit vehicles. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently extended the face mask requirement for all public transportation through Sept. 13.

The mask policy applies to transportation hubs, such as Fort Worth Central Station, as well as other train stations. Masks are required on all services, including buses, TEXRail, Trinity Railway Express, ZIPZONE and ACCESS paratransit.
