“TEXRail ridership is growing every month, and this is the perfect time for anyone who hasn’t ridden yet to come out and give it a try,” Adreski said. “With free rides throughout the Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend, everyone will have a full week to ride TEXRail for free.”

In other news, TEXRail has adjusted its 7:10 p.m. train from DFW Airport Terminal B Station so that it runs the full route back to Fort Worth T&P Station. Up until January 10, it had ended at Mercantile Center Station.

“Our customers have been asking for this change, and we’re delighted to make it happen,” said VP of Rail Jon-Erik “AJ” Arjanen. “We listened to their feedback, and we know this will be a great adjustment to help passengers trying to get back to Fort Worth.”
