Trinity Railway Express Begins Modified Weekday Service
Beginning Monday, March 23, the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) will operate a modified weekday schedule. Click here to view the modified weekday schedule.
As the number of weekday riders working at remote locations and home continues to increase, a temporary TRE weekday schedule has been developed in order to balance the safety and travel needs of our customers and employees. The agency will continue to monitor the situation weekly and make service modifications as needed.
TRE service will be available Monday through Saturday, with the first eastbound train leaving at 5:25 a.m. from West Irving Station. The TRE Saturday schedule currently remains unchanged.
The TRE (jointly owned by DART and Trinity Metro) continues to take additional steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus on trains as well as in office locations. Operation teams are disinfecting TRE trains with a focus on high-tough areas. This includes the use of a hospital-grade spray disinfectant, foaming germicidal cleaner and disinfecting wipes. Train crews have been provided hand sanitizers and access to gloves, and signage has been posted on trains to educate both employees and the public on how to avoid getting sick.
TRE passengers are encouraged to sign-up for Rider Alerts about service changes at trinityrailwayexpress.org
