Buses to Temporarily Replace Some TRE Trains April 6-9

If you ride the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) on the weekends, temporary changes will be coming to your route the first weekend in April.

April 6-9, buses will replace TRE trains between West Irving and CentrePort/DFW Airport stations to aid in the replacement of a bridge over Bear Creek, a major step in TRE’s ongoing capacity improvements.

The substitution will only impact the final two westbound trains on Friday evening, April 6, and all operations on Saturday, April 7, and Monday, April 9.

Passengers can expect possible delays of up to 45 minutes on a typical commute and are encouraged to allow an ample amount of extra time on those days. Weather permitting, normal rail service should resume on Tuesday, April 10.

The closure will enable TRE to increase safety and flexibility with double-track capabilities.

We apologize for any temporary inconvenience. For more information, please contact DART (DART.org or 214-979-1111) or Trinity Metro (FWTA.org or 817-215-8600).
