FORT WORTH, Texas — The Fort Worth Transportation Authority board unanimously authorized its president to sign agreements to run the TEX Rail line, which will run from Fort Worth to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, on tracks owned by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), reported the Star-Telegram.

The tracks, which run from near the Stockyards through Northeast Tarrant County, will allow TEX Rail to connect with DART’s light-rail line at the airport, possibly by 2018.

TEX Rail is tentatively scheduled to reach DFW’s Terminal B by 2018 — enabling passengers to transfer to the Orange Line — but that’s assuming that T officials receive the federal funding needed to complete half the estimated $810 million TEX Rail project. For the full story, click here.
