Trinity Metro resumes regular service on some routes
(FORT WORTH, TX – June 16, 2020) On June 21, Trinity Metro resumedregular service on most bus routes and Trinity Metro TEXRail after operating on a modified schedule since March.
Schedules were altered in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As Texas continues reopening, Trinity Metro is aligning service to meet passenger needs.
“Much of Fort Worth is resuming normal activities, so it makes sense to have our bus routes and TEXRail reflect that trend,”said Bob Baulsir, CEO and president of Trinity Metro. “In areas like downtown Fort Worth and the TCC campuses, everyone is not back to work yet, so we will hold off on reinstating some of the routes until they are needed.”
The following routes havenot resumedyet:Molly the Trolley,Burnett Plaza Lunch Line,Juror Shuttle,Route 23 TCC Northeast Campus/TRE,Route 60X Eastside Xpress,Route 61X Normandale Xpress,111 Bell Shuttleand Route 67X TCC Southeast Campus Xpress.
