DART has agreed to pay $1 billion for each rail project.

The Cotton Belt would continue the TEXRail passenger service from the airport east to Cypress Waters, Carrollton, Addison, Richardson and Plano.

The D2 project gives DART a second route through the central business district rather than running all four train lines on one set of tracks.​​
