DART accelerates opening date for DFW Airport Station

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will connect North Texas commuter to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW Airport) four months early and under budget with the opening of DFW Airport Station August 18.

 

The five-mile Orange Line extension from Belt Line Station to the newly rebuilt Terminal A at DFW Airport will bring the light-rail system to 90 miles.

"Opening a project of this complexity early and under budget is a great testament to the work of our DART team and our colleagues at DFW Airport," DART President/Executive Director Gary Thomas said. "Support from the Federal Transit Administration and Federal Aviation Administration was also crucial to beating the targeted opening."
