The project was implemented in two phases — Phase One was executed by DART and Phase Two by The T. The Trinity Railway Express (TRE) is the commuter rail service that uses this corridor today. Fort Worth’s old Texas & Pacific Railroad building became an intermodal center, with TRE transporting suburban commuters into the city. The project also instituted a shuttle bus to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, as well as light rail service.
Urban is also the Monitoring and Technical Assistance Contractor (MTAC) for the Federal Railroad Administration’s Central Region Projects, which are comprised of High-Speed Rail and TIGER grants in Texas and other Region VI states. Services include compliance and programmatic monitoring support, deliverable review and technical assistance, and training and administrative support. These efforts require development of regular reports, technical memoranda, and other supporting documents to assist the FRA and its grantees.
