Texas' TRE increases frequencies, extends service hours

Posted on October 26, 2016

Dallas-Forth Worth’s Trinity Railway Express (TRE) announced that it is launching more frequent trains and extended hours of service.

The new schedule features weekday train service every 30 minutes during peak periods. For evening, mid-day and Saturday service, the frequency will be every 60 minutes.

Riders will also benefit from greater weekend service, with later service hours on Friday and Saturday. In addition, Saturday service will start three hours earlier.

“These enhancements to TRE service are designed to meet the needs of our customers while giving them more options for maximum convenience,” said Paul Ballard, president/CEO of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority.

"Customers have been asking for these improvements, and we are pleased to put them in place," DART President/Executive Director Gary Thomas said. "More convenient schedules benefit our current riders and we believe will help us attract new ones."

The Trinity Railway Express is jointly operated by the Fort Worth Transportation Authority and Dallas Area Rapid Transit. The 10-station route runs between Fort Worth’s T&P Station and Dallas Union Station.
