DART Opens DFW Airport Station; UD a 25-Minute Train Ride Away

 

 

At about 4 o'clock Monday morning, the first DART Orange Line train rolled into DFW Airport Station, only five stops down from UD's own light rail station. Just in time for the fall semester, the campus now has direct access via public transportation to the DFW International Airport, only a 25-minute ride away.

With 50 percent of UD's undergraduate population hailing from out of state and 20 percent of graduate business students coming from outside the country, direct airport access will make a huge impact on the university.
