Commuters and travelers to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport can expect an early Christmas present this year. The 4.7-mile Orange Line extension to DFW Airport is trending ahead of schedule and we’ll be able to open the line earlier than the planned December date.

The current goal is to open the new DFW Airport Station at Terminal A by the start of the State Fair of Texas® in late September.

There’s a lot of work to do, so we’re not ready to set an official opening date, but we’re committed to beating the December target.

You may start seeing test trains this spring around the Terminal A area, but we still have systems testing, operator training and construction to complete. Stay tuned.

    This is going to make such a huge positive impact for Dallas and the Dallas economy.

    Now if DART will just get its act together and run a direct line to Dallas Love Field Airport then things would really be phenomenal in linking our two major airports to Downtown Dallas and all other points served by DART.

      I agree. Do you think that the Orange Line will have full service to Parker Road station when the extension is complete?
