🕐 1 min read

GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — Rail service has reached Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s newest light rail station opens Monday at the airport that handles nearly 166,000 passengers daily.

The nearly 5-mile final extension of the Orange Line begins service four months ahead of schedule at the D/FW Airport Station. The $152 million extension offers rail service at Terminal A.

DART is the state’s largest municipal rail system, serving Dallas and a dozen surrounding cities. The D/FW Airport Station is touted as a way to provide one of the nation’s busiest airports with a rail connection to downtown Dallas.

DART bus routes previously combined with rail service to reach Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
