Brian Luenser's Take on the T

Many residents depend on the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) commuter rail line that runs through the DFW Metroplex. Established by an agreement between Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T), the first segment of the TRE opened in 1996. Following along a 10-mile commuter rail line, the TRE originally linked Union Station in downtown Dallas to the Medical/Market Center Station and the South Irving Transit Center. More than 4,000 people rode the train during its first day of operation. Today commuters can ride the TRE to/from Texas & Pacific Station at 1600 Throckmorton St. and Union Station at 400 S. Houston St. in Dallas.
