FAQs

For more information on the TEXRail project, questions and answers are organized by General, Design/Construction, Operations, Stations/Parking, Cost/Funding, and Environmental. Can’t find it here? Please contact us with your inquiry.

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 B43, 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.

How much will TEXRail cost? Is it a regional fare?

TEXRail’s route is entirely in Tarrant County, so the fare 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. We encourage patrons to purchase tickets before boarding. Once onboard, you may purchase a ticket, but the cost will be $5 for a one-way ticket.

 

Through Jan. 31, 2019, customers can ride TEXRail for free.

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.

Can I park at the TEXRail stations?

Free parking is available at all stations except for Downtown ITC/Fort Worth Station and DFW Airport’s Terminal B. The maximum length of parking at the other seven stations is 18 hours to accommodate long shifts and overnight shifts.

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 Downtown ITC/Fort Worth 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

From Downtown ITC/Fort Worth Station: 48 minutes

From North Side Station: 39 minutes

From Mercantile Center Station: 33 minutes

From North Richland Hills/Iron Horse Station: 26 minutes

From North Richland Hills/Smithfield Station: 21 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.
