The Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC) is an intermodal transit station in Fort Worth, Texas. It serves Trinity Railway Express commuter rail, Amtrak intercity rail, and buses, and it planned to serve the TEXRail commuter system. It is located at the corner of 9th and Jones Streets, on the east side of downtown Fort Worth. TRE service began on December 3, 2001, serving the Fort Worth Convention Center, the Fort Worth Water Gardens, Sundance Square, Bass Performance Hall and Tarrant County government facilities. Amtrak's Texas Eagle and Heartland Flyer serve the station. The station also serves as the main bus transit hub for the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (known locally as "The T"), as well as Greyhound. In the case of The T, before the ITC's opening, the main downtown transit hub for The T centered around bus lines all converging into a transit mall along the one-way couplet corridor of Houston Street and Throckmorton Street.
ITC is located north of two other former railroad stations:
- The former Santa Fe Freight Building, built in 1938, now serves as the University of Texas at Arlington's Fort Worth Education Center and Automated Robotics & Research Institute.
- The former Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Passenger Station, built in 1900, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. It served as Fort Worth's Amtrak station from Amtrak's inception in 1971, until ITC opened for Amtrak passengers, in 2002. Following restoration, it is now a party/banquet facility.
