Access North Texas Key

Dallas/Fort Worth Airport

The purpose of Access North Texas is to build partnerships and better coordinate the delivery of transportation services throughout the region.  This can only be accomplished by hearing from you.  In the near future a kick-off meeting will be held, followed by county-specific meetings from the fall of 2016 through the spring of 2017.  These discussions will allow us to focus our efforts on coordinating service and increasing efficiencies in public and human service transportation, therefore allowing us to better serve older adults, people with disabilities, low-income individuals and other groups with transportation challenges.


Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW Airport) is the largest airport in Texas and second largest in the United States. Travel to and from the DFW airport is significant as it takes into account a variety of forms.  Passengers do not need to rely upon their car to arrive for their flight.  Uber and Lyft now exceed taxi and limousines according to airport data.  And Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) provides convenient transportation to the airport using the DART Rail Orange Line, the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) and their bus.   


In 2013 we learned the following key strategies for the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport include:

  • Explore feeder transit service from cities with significant population of airport employees
  • Explore partnerships for site-specific shuttles to serve major employers
  • Implement parking policies at transit stations
  • Maintain a last-mile connection between DFW and CentrePort Station, and
  • Encourage employees to use transit

As we summarize the public transportation needs of today, we request your specific insight.  How has the region changed?  What new challenges are before us?  Have past struggles been overcome?   


More information will be posted on this web page as it becomes available.
