Orange is the new track
The longest light rail system in the US is now linked to one of the world's busiest airports
The August 18 opening of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s last Orange Line segment means that the longest light rail system in the US is now linked to one of the world's busiest airports. The new 8-kilometre segment links the Belt Line Station to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport’s newly renovated Terminal A, which now makes the entire Orange Line 22.5-kilometres long. (It provides access to landmarks like the Mustangs of Las Colinas, Irving Convention Center, Dallas Museum of Art, Perot Museum, Klyde Warren Park, the famous West End, American Airlines Center and Downtown Plano.) The first Orange Line train departing downtown Dallas arrives at the airport at 3:50am; the last departing the airport for downtown at 1:12am weekdays, 12:12am weekends. A two-hour pass costs US$2.50; a day pass US$5. dart.org/riding/dfwairport.asp
