TEXRail service to begin Jan. 5 with free rides


Editor’s note: Trinity Metro has extended its service for free TEXRail rides to the full month of January. Read more here.

On Jan. 5, Trinity Metro, formerly known as the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, will begin operations of its TEXRail light-rail system. TEXRail is a new 27-mile commuter rail project that will extend from downtown Fort Worth, through Grapevine and Colleyville, and into the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport at Terminal B.

To help the rail pick up steam passengers can ride at no charge during the first two weeks of operation, or from Jan. 5 to Jan. 19.

TEXRail will pick up passengers every hour at one of its nine stations and is projected to serve more than 8,000 daily riders by the end of the first year of operation. By 2035 nearly 14,000 riders are expected to ride per day.

  1. Is there anything that can be done about the loud train horn? It is absolutely awful. I have heard it at 5 am and 6a every day for the last week. Now it is going at 2:40am today. We live 10+ blocks away from the rail and the horn still pierces through our closed windows. What are people experiencing who live close? This is a bad deal for Grapevine. We deserve better that the loud horn noise. This could hurt property values.
