The Dash

The Dash was first introduced in late May and was tested out on the streets for the following few weeks.

The county's regional transportation system, Trinity Metro, began regular transit services of The Dash on Sunday, Sept. 22.

The new 100% battery-powered bus does not have a tailpipe, meaning it emits zero waste products that pollute the environment.

The Dash runs from Downtown Fort Worth to the 7th Street corridor and the Cultural District.

All rides are complimentary through Oct. 31. Starting Nov. 1, tickets will be $2 one way or $5 for a day pass, which includes all of Trinity Metro’s bus services, TEXRail and Trinity Railway Express to CentrePort.

“We’re delighted to support Trinity Metro in its pursuit to providing Forth Worth residents with a cleaner, more livable city," Chris Stoddart, president of bus manufacturer New Flyer, said in a press release. 

Trinity Metro is hosting a launch celebratory event Monday morning at Crockett Row  . Slap wristbands that are good for discounts from more than 20 Crockett Row merchants and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will be given out during the event.

The Dash will operate 9:22 a.m. to 10:44 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday. On Fridays and Saturdays, the service runs from 9:22 a.m. till 12:44 a.m.
