(FORT WORTH, TX – Oct. 30, 2019) – With the season of trick-or-treating upon us, Trinity Metro has a special treat for riders of The Dash. Customers can now enjoy complimentary rides on The Dash through Dec. 31, 2019. The route operates between
downtown Fort Worth, the 7th Street corridor, Crockett Row’s dining and entertainment options, the Cultural District and the new Dickies Arena.
“We’ve had such a great response from riders who are using our new battery-electric bus service,” said Trinity Metro CEO and President Bob Baulsir. “The feedback has been so positive that we decided to extend free rides on The Dash through the end of the year.”
Since service began on Sept. 22, more than 6,500 passengers have ridden The Dash. Customers enjoy a perimeter seating arrangement that allows for a comfortable and engaging way to visit with friends and other passengers while en route.
The late night service on Friday and Saturday nights also makes The Dash a popular choice for weekend outings. The Dash operates 9:22 a.m.-10:44 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, and 9:22 a.m.-12:44 a.m. Friday-Saturday. The full schedule is available online.
