Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) announced on Monday that they have teamed up with Molson-Coors company to offer free transportation between EBJ Union Station and CentrePort/DFW Airport Station on DART buses, light rail, paratransit services, and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) from 6 p.m. until the end of regular service on New Year’s Eve.

The free rides to folks on DART will come a day after the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) celebrates 25 years of commuter rail service across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

On December 30, 1996, the TRE made its debut. The 10-mile commuter rail line, which ran between EBJ Union Station and South Irving Station, saw over 4,000 riders on its first day of service, but did not realize its full vision until five years later, on December 3, 2001. The TRE became a commuter rail system that serves the needs of all residents in North Texas, stretching from EBJ Union Station to the Fort Worth T&P Station in Downtown Fort Worth.

As part of the celebration, the TRE offers riders the opportunity to win 25 days of free rides. Participants who share their fondest TRE memories have a chance to win 25 regional day passes. Entries will be accepted here through January 2, 2022.

Look for New Year’s Eve schedules on the DART and Trinity Railway sites.

Victory Station Plaza, a one-acre public park adjacent to the DART Victory Station with direct access to the DART system, was announced earlier this month by DART and Victory Park.

The large, landscaped plaza will be beside Victory Commons One, Hillwood Urban’s new 365,000 square foot Class-A office building, located across the street from the American Airlines Center. According to a DART press release, both the new Plaza and Victory Commons were completed on November 19, 2021.

“This was a terrific partnership with DART, where together, we were able to bring a great new public park into an urban environment that will enhance the quality of life for those who work, live, and travel throughout Victory Park and beyond,” said Ken Reese, executive vice president of Hillwood Urban on the DART website. “This Park space was always part of DART’s plan for this land going back 20 years to when Hillwood originally built the AAC. We are excited to help make this happen and enhance the neighborhood, not to mention provide great views from the office space overlooking the park.”
