What are the benefits of TEXRail for NRH?
The new commuter rail service will:
  • provide greater transportation options for residents and help to get cars off congested roadways;

  • provide options for senior citizens, students and others who may be mobility impaired or do not have access to a vehicle;

  • increase convenience and reliable travel time for those who work at and use DFW airport, as well as those who commute to downtown Fort Worth;

  • provide connections to other transportation services including DFW Airport, Trinity Railway Express (TRE) commuter rail service, AMTRAK, and The T’s downtown bus transfer center at the downtown Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC) and T&P Station as well as Dallas Area Rapid Transit light rail system and the Denton County Transportation Agency’s A-Train;

  • make NRH businesses more accessible to employees, employers and customers;

  • spur new residential and commercial development near the stations.
