Trinity Metro is seeking public input until November 30 about a proposed 2.1 mile extension of the TEXRail from the Fort Worth T&P station to a new Southside station in the Fort Worth Medical District.

TEXRail currently runs 27 miles from downtown Fort Worth to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The rail opened in January 2019 and has stations in Fort Worth, North Richland Hills, and Grapevine. 

The proposed extension would run west along I-30 then take a turn southward near the Chisholm Trail Parkway. 

Currently, the environmental analysis is being completed, which includes seeking public comment about the project and its impact. Comments can be submitted by mail, phone, or electronically through the project’s website.
