Rail Station Area Fact Sheets
Rail Station Area Fact Sheets provide a brief overview of the demographic, transit service, planning, development data, and existing and planned pedestrian and bicycle facilities within a half-mile distance of each light rail and commuter rail station in the Dallas-Fort Worth Region. Data provided in the fact sheets are products of NCTCOG’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Data Collection efforts and the Active Transportation Routes to Rail study. Fact Sheets may also be accessed along with additional data on the Interactive TOD Map. Additional information about the Active Transportation Routes to Rail study and methodology is provided here. A guide to the data and analysis methodology for the station area demographics and development data in the fact sheets is found here.

The purpose of the TOD Data Collection project is to capture accurate data related to demographics, employment, housing, transit ridership, land values, and more for all 82 rail station areas that are existing or under construction in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The regional rail system is comprised of more than 140 miles of light and commuter rail. Regional transit agencies include the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), and Trinity Metro.
Data collection is intended to assist cities, transit agencies, and other stakeholders to identify development trends and activities around transit stops, and to better assess future development opportunities around existing transit stations. NCTCOG’s TOD Data Collection products include the TOD Interactive Map and Station Area Fact Sheets (above), and the Transit Commuter Infographic (below).

Transit commuter data comes from the 2014 Regional On-Board Transit Survey. This transit survey was led by NCTCOG in partnership with DART, DCTA and Trinity Metro. The data used in this study includes only those trips identified with workplace as a destination or origin.
The data for "All Commuters" comes from the 2010-2014 American Community Survey (ACS) five-year estimates for the 12 counties in NCTCOG's Metropolitan Planning Area. The ACS data includes demographic and Journey to Work data for workers 16 years and older.
