DART Accelerates Opening Date for DFW Airport Station
Dallas Area Rapid Transit connects North Texas commuters to the world four months early and under budget with the opening of DFW Airport Station on Monday, Aug. 18.
The five-mile Orange Line extension from Belt Line Station to the newly rebuilt Terminal A at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport will bring the nation's longest 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."
