The distance between the airport and either city is only 20 minutes by car, and there are other ways to get there as well, like trains and buses. The TRE (Trinity Railway Express), TEXrail, and DART (the Dallas Area Rapid Transit) are among the trains.
The TRE stops at both cities and connects them to the airport itself. Every day except Sunday, it is open from five in the morning until eleven at night. You can board the train at the Airport Station if you’re coming from the airport.
Getting around Fort Worth and connecting it to the airport is the TEXrail’s primary goal. Additionally, it is important to note that, unlike the TRE, the TEXrail runs every day of the week and all day except for the early morning hours between two and five in the morning. This service is located at the designated platform in Terminal B.
The DART also connects the city of Dallas to the airport, which is its final focus. Any day of the week, the DART can be met at the Airport Station.
