Trinity Metro TexRail To Offer More Rides Starting Sunday


Fort Worth is about to get more frequent access to DFW Airport, thanks to Trinity Metro TexRail.

The commuter rail line is planning to increase the frequency of train trips to and from the airport. Starting Sunday, TexRail will offer 10 hours of 30-minute frequency during peak hours all week long, Trinity Metro announced this week.

According to Bob Baulsir, president and CEO of Trinity Metro, this has been the plan all along. "We always intended to increase frequency after six months of service to provide more options for commuters, travelers and other passengers," he said in a statement. "Riders love our service, and we often hear that they are eager for more trains to run."

Riders should expect more schedule changes to accommodate the increased number of daily trips. Be sure to check the online schedule before you make plans.
