DART station at DFW Airport nearing completion

IMG_0802Dallas/Fort Worth Airport showed off its new DART station, which is nearing completion. Airport CEO Sean Donohue said international passengers are used to having rail service connecting an airport to downtown.

While construction will be completed this month, DART President Gary Thomas said it will take several months for trains to start running to D/FW. Testing on the Orange Line will begin in a few weeks, and although DART is scheduled to begin service in December, it could start as early as this fall.

"When you look at airport connections around the United States, you get a lot of your [rail] customers [who] are actually employees, but when you go around the world, though, you see not only the employees but the travelers" using the rail system, Thomas said. "It is our opportunity to make sure everyone is aware of the new DART line."
