Trinity Metro Opens New Station


Trinity Metro, Fort Worth, TX, has opened its Trinity Lakes Station in east Fort Worth. The station is one of 10 stops for Trinity Railway Express (TRE), the commuter rail line running between Fort Worth and Dallas. Representatives of FTA, Tarrant County Commissioners Court, Fort Worth City Council, and other leaders and stakeholders across North Texas joined the agency for a ribbon cutting.

“This train station is about mobility; it’s about connecting communities,” said Richard Andreski, Trinity Metro president and CEO. “What this station represents is the future of our city. People depend on reliable transportation to get to work, to visit family, and to participate in their community—and rail transit is a big part of that.”

Trinity Lakes Station also offers TRE travelers connectivity to two Trinity Metro bus routes, including service to Tarrant County College Northeast Campus. The new station is part of Trinity Lakes, a 1,600-acre master-planned community that includes retail and residential transit-oriented development.

Michael Morris, director of transportation for North Central Texas Council of Governments, stressed the importance of celebrating the teamwork involved in making Trinity Lakes Station a reality. “Stop and celebrate what you have as a Fort Worth family and how you deliver projects,” he said. “When you invest in transit, you’re investing in hope, you’re investing in air quality, you’re investing in cities, you’re investing in economic development, and you’re creating an opportunity to change the world, one station at a time.”
