Central US Transit > Dallas
DFW Skylink



 The Skylink system is a double-track airport people mover at the very large Dallas-Forth Worth Airport. It links all the terminals on the secured side of the airport.

The longest trip between stations the furthest 2 stations is 9 minutes. Trains run about every 2 minutes. It is a very efficient means of going between terminals. IT is also a good way to kill some time during layovers to see all the planes at the terminals.

The system was built to include a future Terminal F if that should ever be built.
