Attention commuters — the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) will have a new station in northeast Fort Worth very soon.
Trinity Metro is set to close the TRE Richland Hills Station at the end of service on Saturday, Feb. 17, and open service at the brand-new Trinity Lakes Station — about two miles away — on Monday, Feb. 19.
Construction is currently underway at 1539 Central Park Dr., Hurst — between the current Richland Hills and Bell stations — located east of Loop 820 and north of Trinity Boulevard.
The new station is part of Trinity Lakes, a 1,600-acre master plan that includes a transit-oriented development with retail spaces and residences.
The Richland Hills station opened in 2000 but will be decommissioned after service ends.
TRE has been running commuter services between downtown Fort Worth and downtown Dallas since 2001 — you may have seen the iconic red, white, and blue three-car train crossing one of Cowtown’s many bridges.
