Within airport

The current people mover system, named Skylink, opened on May 21, 2005 and is the world's largest high-speed airport train system. Totally automated, Skylink trains run every two minutes, and travel at speeds up to 35 mph (56 km/h). Skylink is double-tracked, permitting bi-directional operations. The Skylink system was acquired from Bombardier Transportation and connects all terminals on the secure side.

Skylink replaced the original Airtrans system (part of which was later operated as American Airlines' TrAAin System), a state-of-the-art people mover at the time of the airport's opening. It served the airport for 31 years from 1974–2005 and transported a quarter of a billion passengers between DFW's four terminals and employee facilities, logging a total of 97,000,000 miles (156,000,000 km) on its fleet. Over time, its top speed of 17 mph (27 km/h) and uni-directional guideway made it impractical for connecting passenger transfers. The system was decommissioned soon after Skylink opened as a modern replacement; the old guideways were left in place throughout the airport.

Terminal Link connects all terminals with a shuttle bus system on the non-secure side.

To and from airport

DFW is served by the Trinity Railway Express commuter rail line at CentrePort/DFW Airport Station, south of the airport. The line serves both downtown Dallas and downtown Fort Worth. To reach the airport from the station, riders must take a Remote Parking shuttle bus and transfer to another bus serving either Terminals A and C, Terminals B and E, or Terminal D.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) offers bus service to downtown Dallas and Irving on Route 310 to Express Route 202 at the North Irving Transit Center. In 2014 DART will open DFW Airport Station located between Terminals A and B. This will provide direct rail service on the Orange Line to Dallas and Las Colinas (with a later extension to DFW North Station). These stations will become major stations for the future Southwest-to-Northeast Rail Corridor under development by the Fort Worth Transportation Authority and the DART Cotton Belt Rail Line.
