When Trinity Metro’s new 27-mile TEXRail commuter rail line begins service on Jan. 5, 2019, passengers can try out the train for free until Feb. 1. TEXRail will run from downtown Fort Worth to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal B, providing a daily commuting option for regional employees and travelers.

“TEXRail is a premium service, and we want to give everyone an opportunity to ride,” said Trinity Metro Senior Vice President Bob Baulsir. “From the day we open on Jan. 5 until the end of January, we won’t charge a fare.”

On Feb. 1, customers will pay $2.50 for a one-way ticket. A $5 day pass is good for all rail and buses in Tarrant County.

TEXRail service will begin at the Texas & Pacific Station in Fort Worth and will travel through north Fort Worth, North Richland Hills and Grapevine before its final stop at Terminal B. The first train departs Fort Worth at 3:25 a.m. and arrives at the airport at 4:17 a.m.

Trinity Metro expect to have 8,000 riders a day by the end of the first year of service.

“TEXRail’s extended hourly schedule is perfect for airport employees or travelers with early flights,” Baulsir said. “By operating 365 days a year for the majority of hours each day, we are offering riders the opportunity to avoid the hassles of driving while knowing what time they will arrive.”
