(FORT WORTH, TEXAS) April 11, 2019 – Trinity Railway Express (TRE) passengers will soon have a new way to travel to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. On April 15, Trinity Metro will begin operating the TRE Link in conjunction with Dallas Area Rapid Transit and DFW Airport.
TRE Link, which features a paint scheme similar to the TRE, will replace the existing shuttle that connects CentrePort passengers with the airport. Like the current service, TRE Link will operate every 30 minutes on weekdays.
“TRE passengers have expressed their interest in having this airport shuttle service continue, and we are pleased to introduce the TRE Link,” Trinity Metro President/CEO Paul J Ballard said. “We appreciate the North Central Texas Council of Governments for providing grant funding for the first six months of service.”
Trinity Metro will provide three 35-foot buses to begin TRE Link service, and NCTCOG will provide future grant funding to purchase new vehicles for the route.
