FORT WORTH'S PREMIER PLACE TO LIVE, WORK, PLAY AND LEARN

Fort Worth transit agency testing electric buses

This summer, folks in Fort Worth may spot a bright red, electric bus known as the Dash making the rounds on the streets.

For many, the obvious question might be: What the heck is the Dash?

The Dash is a new zero-emissions service that Trinity Metro, Fort Worth’s regional transit agency, plans to operate every 15 minutes daily from the Fort Worth Central transit station downtown to cultural district attractions, including UNT Health Science Center and the new Dickies Arena.

Although Dash service won’t be open to the public until Sept. 22, Trinity Metro has received the first of four buses that will operate the route. And starting this week, drivers are being trained to use the new all-electric, battery-powered vehicles, and are making daily runs along the route.
