Kick back as you dash between downtown Fort Worth and the Cultural District.

Trinity Metro riders can enjoy complimentary rides on The Dash through Dec. 31. The route operates between downtown Fort Worth, the Seventh Street corridor, Crockett Row’s dining and entertainment options, the Cultural District and the newly-opened 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.

The late-night service on Friday and Saturday nights also makes The Dash a popular choice for weekend outings. The Dash operates from 9:22 a.m. to 10:44 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, and 9:22 a.m. to 12:44 a.m. Friday-Saturday. The full schedule is available on the Trinity Metro website.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, tickets will be $2 one way or $5 for a day pass, which includes all of Trinity Metro’s bus services, Trinity Metro TEXRail and Trinity Railway Express to CentrePort Station.
