DART eyes early access to DFW Airport Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) said it anticipates opening its 4.7-mile Orange Line light rail transit extension to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport ahead of schedule.

DART made the announcement late Friday, Jan. 24, 2014, after earlier in the day marking the start of construction of its South Oak Cliff Three Line extension.

The Orange Line extension was originally set to open this December. But DART's revised goal foresees opening the new DFW Airport Station at Terminal A in time for the State Fair of Texas®, held in late September.

DART noted test trains on the airport extension could begin operating as early as this spring.
