    it’s 2016 and there isn’t commuter rail from Dallas to DFW airport ?

    it’s only 27 miles.

    Streetsblog’s title/summary of the article is misleading. First, there IS already commuter rail between Dallas and Fort Worth. Has been for years (The Trinity Railway Express), though I won’t claim it’s a good system. Second, there is light rail between Dallas and DFW airport (though it just recently opened).

    The article is actually talking about a transit line between Fort Worth and DFW airport. which is located equidistant to Dallas and Fort Worth.
