Our Vision

Our vision is to provide transit services that make Tarrant County more livable and support continued economic growth.

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA) was created in 1983 as a regional transportation authority of the State of Texas and is not an agency or department of any of its member cities.

The FWTA annually provides nearly 10 million passenger trips on buses, vanpools and the Trinity Railway Express, which it jointly owns and operates with Dallas Area Rapid Transit. FWTA is developing TEXRail, a commuter rail from Fort Worth to DFW Airport’s Terminal B.

FWTA is governed by an eleven-member board of directors with eight appointed by the Fort Worth City Council and three by Tarrant County Commissioners Court.
