Know Before You Go

Onboard Restroom

When you’re on the go – and you gotta go – it’s good to know the important how-to information for using the TEXRail bathroom. From the outside, a green button means the bathroom is available; red means it’s occupied. When you’re in the bathroom, the green light means the door is unlocked. If the light is red, the door is locked.

Parking Policy

If you’re heading to the airport, think outside the box and leave your car at home. TEXRail is the best and most economical way to get to the airport, so ask someone to drop you off at the nearest station or take one of our bus routes that connects with a TEXRail station.

For commuters and day trippers, we offer free parking at all stations except for Fort Worth Central Station and DFW Airport’s Terminal B. The maximum length of parking at the other seven stations is 20 hours to accommodate long shifts and overnight shifts. Anyone who leaves a car for longer than 20 hours risks having the vehicle towed. The stations are monitored by security personnel and cameras.

If you’re looking for station addresses, you can find them on Google or on the TEXRail map page.

Pet Policy

Service dogs accompanying customers with disabilities or their trainers are permitted on TEXRail. Passengers may also bring a small pet in a travel carrier.

No dining on TEXRail

If you’re bringing any food or drink on the train, be sure all consumables are in sealed containers. We want everyone to have a clean and enjoyable train ride.

Will TEXRail extend to the southwest?

The TEXRail plan divides TEXRail into two segments. Segment 2 was completed first, with 27 miles of the route running from downtown Fort Worth to DFW Airport’s Terminal B. Segment 1 would run from the Fort Worth T&P Station to southwest Fort Worth. Completion of the extension is contingent upon capital funding.

Once I arrive at Terminal B, how do I connect to other terminals?
  • Upon arrival at the DFW Airport Terminal B station, passengers make their way inside Terminal B, via entry B30, where American Airlines passengers can check their bags. American Airlines passengers, along with those without checked baggage, can then pass through security and ride Skylink to their departure terminal. All other passengers can use Terminal Link to travel to their departure terminal. Terminal Link buses can be accessed on the upper level of Terminal B in marked areas. Terminal A is a short walk from TEXRail’s Terminal B station on the lower level, which offers the same services for all passengers. For more information, consult the DFW Airport website. Arriving passengers should go to Terminal B and exit at B30 to access TEXRail. For more details, visit our airport information page.
How much will TEXRail cost? Is it a regional fare?

TEXRail’s route is entirely in Tarrant County, so the ticket is only $2.50 for a single ride or $5 for day pass. The $5 option is good for all rail and bus services in Tarrant County. Check our ticket information page for all pricing, including reduced tickets. Patrons can purchase tickets at the ticket vending machines on the platforms or at the kiosk at Fort Worth Central Station. A one-day pass can be purchased on the GoPass app. Weekly and monthly passes can be purchased through the online Trinity Metro Store.

Will TEXRail run on Sundays?

Yes. TEXRail will operate 365 days a year.

How often do the trains operate?

TEXRail trains run hourly. In Spring 2019, the plan is to start 30-minute frequency during peak operating times on weekdays.

Where are the TEXRail stations?

The stations are in Fort Worth, North Richland Hills and Grapevine. You can find the full route map here. A list of addresses is available on the second page of the TEXRail facts.

How can I purchase a ticket?

You can purchase fares at a ticket vending machine on the platform or in advance at a customer service location, such as the kiosk at the Fort Worth Central Station. If you run short on time, you can buy your ticket on the train, but it will cost twice as much – $5 for a one-way ride.

Can I take food and beverage on board?

Food and beverages must be in sealed containers and cannot be consumed on board the train.

How long does it take to get to DFW Airport Terminal B Station?

From Fort Worth T&P Station: 52 minutes

Will TEXRail run a reduced schedule on holidays?

TEXRail will operate 365 days a year. On holidays, the train will run on a weekend schedule.

Am I allowed to bring my bike on board TEXRail?

Yes, we encourage riders to bring their bikes on board. We have vertical bike racks inside the train to securely stow your bike while you’re on TEXRail.

Where is the quiet car? What is the quiet car?

The quiet car is the first car on the front of the train. Because of the train’s bidirectional design, the quiet car could be the last car on the train. Look for the quiet car decals to make sure you are in the correct location. The quiet car designation gives passengers the opportunity to sit in an area where they can read or work quietly – or just relax.
