Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is a light rail and planned commuter rail station located at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport for service on the DART Orange Line[1] and the FWTA TEX Rail and DART Cotton Belt commuter rail lines.

DART light rail station[edit]

The light rail station opened on August 18, 2014,[2] and it serves as the northwestern terminus of the Orange Line.[3] It is located between Terminals A and B. The station is easily accessible from the lower level of Terminal A near A10.

FWTA commuter rail station[edit]

FWTA (the T) is currently planning to construct TEX Rail from T&P Station in Fort Worth to DFW Airport Station in Grapevine. A key component is this station, which will provide transfers to the DART Cotton Belt Line and the DART Orange Line. DFW Airport, after announcements that TEX Rail was green-lit for construction, has said that they will provide $40 million to build this station, which would leave the FWTA to build the DFW North station, the only other TEX Rail station on airport property.[4]
