Apart from the commuter rail line going in and out of DFW Airport, Trinity Railway Express’s red, white and blue colors will soon be seen in bus services as well.
Trinity Metro, the agency that operates TRE, has announced the launch of a new shuttle bus service, TRE Link.
TRE Link will connect DFW Airport to CentrePort Station, located on Statler Boulevard in Fort Worth, starting Monday, April 15.
The new shuttle replaces TRE Airport Service, an existing shuttle that runs the same route.
Currently, the service linking CentrePort and airport terminals is free for riders.
“TRE passengers have expressed their interest in having this airport shuttle service continue, and we are pleased to introduce the TRE Link,” Trinity Metro President and CEO Paul Ballard said.
Trinity Metro will roll out three 35-foot buses to begin the TRE Link service.
North Central Texas Council of Governments has agreed to fund the first six months of the service. NCTCOG will also provide future grants to fund purchases of new vehicles on the CentrePort to DFW Airport route.
Trinity Metro had also started a commuter rail line from Fort Worth downtown to DFW International Airport, TexRail, earlier this year.
