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.
