Open Today: Light Rail Connection to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

Called the "biggest accomplishment" in DART's 31-year history, city leaders are hoping the new airport connection brings more international cachet along with tourists, conventions, and investments in downtown.

"Early Monday morning," reports Brandon Formby, "Dallas Area Rapid Transit will debut its DFW Airport Station, outside Terminal A. It is the new western terminus of its Orange Line."

"Many consider this a watershed moment in the region’s transportation history and a major coup in Dallas’ quest to stake claim to 'international city' status," continues Formby.

The article also describes the project as a legacy for the creation of DART back in 1983, when a light rail link to the airport was promised as a part of the investments made possible by the one percent sales tax that created the transit agency.
