Ride DART and the Trinity Railway Express to Big Events at American Airlines Center
Big concerts and the big top are coming to American Airlines Center, and DART and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) will get you there in a snap. The center hosts a variety of concerts through the summer - from Simon & Garfunkel and Sarah McLachlan to the Zen Music Festival and Usher. And Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus brings "the greatest show on earth" to the center in late July and early August.
The TRE runs from downtown Fort Worth to downtown Dallas and has 10 stops along its path. Trains run eastbound before special events and westbound afterwards. The TRE does not operate on Sundays.
The Trinity Railway Express has a fare-zone boundary at the Tarrant/Dallas county line (between CentrePort and West Irving stations). Travel within one zone costs $1.25 for a single ride or $2.50 for a Day Pass; to travel across the boundary, passengers can purchase single-ride tickets for $2.25 or round-trip Day Passes for $4.50. Tickets are available from ticket vending machines at each station. Monthly DART and T passes also are accepted.
