Fort Worth's The T names commuter rail project

Posted on March 22, 2011

The T (Fort Worth Transportation Authority) board of directors adopted Tarrant Express, or TEX, as the name of the agency's new commuter railroad project.

Previously known as SW2NE, the future commuter rail's corridor runs from Southwest Fort Worth, through downtown Fort Worth and across northeast Tarrant County to Grapevine and into Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The name Tarrant Express was selected by a subcommittee of The T's board, along with input from the Grapevine City Council. The City of Grapevine is a funding-partner of the new passenger line and has been involved in its planning and development from the beginning.

The placeholder name of Southwest-to-Northeast Corridor was created in 2006 during the Alternative Analysis process to help identify to the public where the corridor was located. The shorthand version became SW2NE for ease of communication.
