DART accelerates DFW station's opening day

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is moving up the opening date for a new rail station at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The change to Aug. 18 accelerates the station's opening by four months.

The five-mile Orange Line extension from Belt Line Station to the newly rebuilt Terminal A at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport will bring the nation's longest light-rail system to 90 miles, DART officials said in a press release.

"Opening a project of this complexity early and under budget is a great testament to the work of our DART team and our colleagues at DFW Airport," DART President and Executive Director Gary Thomas said. "Support from the Federal Transit Administration and Federal Aviation Administration was also crucial to beating the targeted opening."
