GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — Rail service has reached Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s newest light rail station opens Monday at the airport that handles nearly 166,000 passengers daily. The nearly 5-mile final extension of the Orange Line begins service four months ahead of schedule at the DFW Airport Station.

The $152 million extension offers rail service at Terminal A. DART is the state’s largest municipal rail system, serving Dallas and a dozen surrounding cities. The DFW Airport Station is touted as a way to provide one of the nation’s busiest airports with a rail connection to downtown Dallas.
