Traveling by Train

Train travel is an integral part of Texas history, and much of our economic development was made possible through the expansion of the railroads in the mid-1800s.

Trinity Metro is proud to continue that tradition through the Trinity Railway Express and TEXRail, serving DFW area commuters for work and pleasure alike.

Trinity Railway Express

Why limit life to one city? Enjoy all of the unique attractions and business opportunities that the Dallas-Fort Worth area has to offer – all easily accessible using the Trinity Railway Express (TRE). The TRE commuter rail service connects downtown Fort Worth and downtown Dallas, and many points in between.
The TRE is provided by Trinity Metro and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). Scheduled train service is provided Monday through Saturday. No service is available on Sunday.


TEXRail is a 27-mile commuter rail project being developed by Trinity Metro and will be the next passenger rail service coming to Tarrant County. The opening commuter rail line, or initial service section, will extend from downtown Fort Worth, and continue through the Northside, North Richland Hills and Grapevine to the northern entrance of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. This section is projected to have more than 8,000 daily riders at the initial start of service using nine rail stations. By 2035, the ridership is expected to have grown to 13,000 daily riders.
