Trinity Metro kicked off 2019 with TEXRail, a new 27-mile commuter rail line that runs from downtown Fort Worth to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal B. Since opening on Jan. 10, the train has been a popular choice for commuters, airport travelers and bicyclists, according to the agency.

Amenities on TEXRail include a designated quiet car, seatback trays, work tables, USB charging ports, vertical bicycle racks and overhead luggage racks. The train also offers level boarding, making it easy for passengers with bikes, strollers, rolling luggage or wheelchairs.

TEXRail is a premium service that will be offered to the public at a nominal cost of $2.50 one way or $5 for a day pass, which is good for all Trinity Metro rail and bus services in Tarrant County. To encourage people to try TEXRail, Trinity Metro is offering complimentary rides through the end of January.

“We believe TEXRail is going to be a game-changer for this region,” Trinity Metro President/CEO Paul J Ballard said. “Our new commuter rail line will give travelers the ease and convenience of taking the train to the airport and arriving on time. TEXRail will be a great option for airport workers and other people who work along the route.”
