Changes take effect October 1, 2010
New TRE fares start Oct. 1; weekday service changes, Oct. 4
New fares for the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) will take effect on Friday, Oct. 1 as the second phase of a two-part increase approved by the boards of directors of DART and The T, joint owners and operators of the TRE.
TRE's new fares remain equal to or lower than comparable fares for commuter rails in the Western part of the United States where travel distances are longer. Most transit agencies across the country have raised fares in the past two years due to increased costs and declining sales taxes and other revenue. The first of TRE's two-part increase went into effect in October 2009.
