Fort Worth commuter line ready to buy rail cars

May 3, 2015

Efforts to start the proposed TEX Rail commuter train service by 2018 are gathering steam.

Fort Worth Transportation Authority board members recently approved the purchase of eight self-propelled diesel rail cars to operate on the proposed 27-mile rail line and agreed to enter into several contracts that will help get the project underway. The rail would carry an estimated 10,000 or more passengers per day from downtown Fort Worth to Grapevine and Dallas/Fort Worth Airport’s Terminal B.
