Man biking on the A-train Rail Trail

Celebrate with DCTA: The A-train Rail Trail is Complete

Our A-train Rail Trail construction crossed the finish line in December 2019, and it’s time to celebrate! The rail trail runs alongside our commuter rail line and was designed to complement its surroundings and adjacent facilities in Denton County. With construction now complete, our passengers and residents who utilize the rail trail can now walk, bike or run across the full 19 miles from Denton to Lewisville that has many amenities, scenic views, connecting city trails and easy transfers to our A-train!

While on our rail trail, there are rest stops with benches and trash cans as well as safety features such as the Z crossing fence that is primarily for cyclists to dismount, look both ways and cross the street; but it’s encouraged for all of those using the rail trail to stop and look both ways too.

  • Length: 19-mile long rail trail
  • Total Cost of Construction: Approximately $14 million
