Overview

In April 2017, Herzog was awarded a contract to operate and maintain the Fort Worth Transportation Authority’s regional rail system, known as TEXRail. TEXRail is scheduled to be launched in December 2018 and will operate between Fort Worth, TX and the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in a 27-mile rail corridor. Herzog will provide dispatching and vehicle operations, rolling stock maintenance, and right-of-way activities including track structure and signal systems.

TEXRail will begin operations with a fleet of eight new FLIRT DMUs manufactured by Stadler Bussnang AG. Service will include nine regular station stops, begin with 69 trains per weekday and 47 trains on both Saturday and Sunday (with 30-minute headways during peak hours and 60-minute headways during non-peak and weekends). TEXRail will share the corridor with Fort Worth and Western freight trains and the Grapevine Vintage Railroad.
