ARLINGTON, Texas — The city launched its first mass transit service, a commuter bus route called the Metro ArlingtonXpress, which will transport passengers between Arlington and the Trinity Railway Express’ CentrePort Station, linking them to North Texas’ broader transit system.

The two-year pilot program is jointly operated by Dallas Area Rapid Transit and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority. It’s a major step for a city that has rejected more comprehensive mass transportation proposals over the years, according to a DallasNews.com report. For the full story, click here.

    what I believe the Arlington officials should consider is , less conjestion of traffic and those who don't have a car to get around or to and from work at least they too will be able to enjoy the city better by knowing how great it is and fun ..also the revenue it would bring the city alone on the yearly bases , cause after all the citzens of the city is paying for it and city mananges it with ft.worth and dallas officials .I say give it a try it wont hurt.
