TRE has two fare zones – one for Tarrant County and one for Dallas County. Local fares are required for travel within each county. For trips that include both counties, passengers need a regional ticket. For specific ticket information, visit Trinity Metro’s website or DART’s website – or see Purchase Tickets section below.

How to Ride
Go to the station
TRE rail stations feature connections to other transit services and free parking at those stations with Park & Ride facilities (please refer to the individual station pages to view more information about parking).
Buy your ticket
You must have a valid fare to board the train – a monthly or annual pass, GoPass or validated ticket/day pass.
Fares are based on where you board and depart, not how far you travel. The fare zone divider is at CentrePort/DFW Airport Station. Purchase a REGIONAL Ticket to travel on both sides of CentrePort/DFW Airport Station, as well as on all DCTA (Denton County) services. At CentrePort/DFW Airport Station, if you only have a LOCAL Ticket, you will need to purchase a DART Local Pass to travel further east or a Trinity Metro Local Ticket to travel further west. Please check the fare type to make sure the fare media you use is valid for the zones of travel you will cross.
Check destination signs
Before boarding, check destination signs, which designate the final stop.
Bikes on TRE
Bicycles may be broad on board and stowed in designated areas. Bikes may not prevent disabled passengers from sitting in their area and may not block the operator’s cab.
TRE is ADA compliant and is designed for the comfort and safety of all passengers.
Ticket Vending Machines
Located on all platforms, ticket vending machines provide an easy option for buying tickets. The machines accept cash and debit and credit cards.
