Canoo

Walmart is deploying a fleet of new electric delivery vehicles, and the first place they're trying them out is none other than Dallas-Fort Worth.

According to a release, Walmart signed up in July to buy 4,500 all-electric delivery vehicles from Canoo, a high-tech mobility company based in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Walmart bought Canoo's Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle (LDV), an adorable rounded van that will be driven by Walmart employees to deliver online orders, groceries, and general merchandise.

The LDV is expected to hit the road widely in 2023, but first they're refining the configuration with a test run in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Canoo's LDV is an all-American commercial EV optimized for sustainable "last mile" delivery use cases. It's engineered for high frequency stop-and-go deliveries and speedy vehicle to door drop-off, including groceries and food/meal delivery.

The cargo space is 120 cubic feet, with a modular design, designed for small package delivery, and small enough to be driven like a regular car, says Canoo CEO, chairman, and investor Tony Aquila in a statement.

"Our LDV has the turning radius of a small passenger vehicle on a parking friendly, compact footprint, yet the payload and cargo space of a commercial delivery vehicle," Aquila says. "This is the winning algorithm to seriously compete in the last mile delivery race, globally."

The LDVs will also potentially be used for Walmart GoLocal, their delivery-as-a-service business.

"By continuing to expand our last mile delivery fleet in a sustainable way, we’re able to provide customers and Walmart+ members with even more access to same-day deliveries while keeping costs low," says Walmart senior VP David Guggina.

It'll also allow Walmart to deliver online orders in a sustainable way that contributes to their goal of achieving zero-emissions by 2040.

In addition to dedicated fulfillment centers, Walmart uses 3,800 of its stores to fulfill online orders. The retailer currently does this using a combination of Walmart associates, independent contractors driving on the Spark Driver Network, third-party delivery service providers, and in some locations, autonomous vehicles and drones, to make deliveries.

Last year Canoo, chose Walmart's hometown Bentonville, Arkansas, as its headquarters and Pryor, Oklahoma, as the site for its U.S. manufacturing — establishing an EV ecosystem in the heartland.

Trinity Metro

Trinity Metro has new webcam that lets you spy Fort Worth trains live

Train News

Trinity Metro has launched a new live webcam that'll make you feel like you're in charge of Fort Worth's entire transportation system.

The webcam is online and offers a new perspective on train activities in downtown Fort Worth, any time of day.

If you tune in to the agency's train cam page, you can observe the comings and goings of three passenger train lines and numerous freight trains in real time.

The live webcam offers video of Fort Worth Central Station with a view from the president and CEO's office window. The perspective is from the top floor of Trinity Metro’s headquarters at Grove and 7th streets.

The camera operates around the clock to provide a bird's-eye view of Trinity Metro trains, plus Amtrak and freight. You're the boss!

Track 1
This is where you'll see Trinity Metro TEXRail trains as well as some Trinity Railway Express (TRE) trains. (TEXRail, a commuter rail line between Fort Worth Central Station and DFW Airport Terminal B Station, is owned and operated by Trinity Metro.)

You can identify these trains not only by the track, but also by their bright red doors. If you zoom in - yes, you can zoom in - on the train platform to the right of track 1, you may catch a glimpse of the conductors in traditional uniforms.

Over the course of the day, you’ll see 33 eastbound and 33 westbound trains. For the majority of operating hours, TEXRail runs every 30 minutes – on the hour and half hour. Service is the same every day of the year.

Track 2
This track is for TRE commuter rail, which links Fort Worth Central Station and Union Station in downtown Dallas. (TRE, which features double-decker cars, is jointly owned and operated by Trinity Metro and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)). The cars are red, white, and blue with a white star on the side.

TRE operates different schedules on weekdays vs. Saturday, and does not run on Sunday. On weekdays, you can spot 31 eastbound trains and 31 westbound.

Track 3
Amtrak boards at Fort Worth Central Station. The Texas Eagle (Amtrak 21/421 and 22/422) and the Heartland Flyer (Amtrak 821 and 822) are on Track 3. The track that rises from Track 3 is where the Heartland Flyer leaves for Oklahoma City after a very short backup move.

Freight train tracks
There are numerous freight trains throughout the day and night on the remaining tracks to the left of your screen. These freight trains moving away from the camera are heading west toward Tower 55. You will see Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) and Union Pacific (UP) on these tracks, traveling to or from Tower 55.

Other things to look for
You may observe both TEXRail and TRE trains continuing from Central Station to a terminus at the original Texas and Pacific Railroad station (now the Fort Worth T&P Station), less than one track-mile west.

Tower 55, one of nation’s busiest rail intersections that connects freight and passenger trains, is off to the right of this picture, but it is out of sight.

Fort Worth's Hole-in-the-Wall is also nearby, but not in the picture. This was a choke point for several railroads and utilities, and it was a major challenge to TEXRail during the construction phase.

Affordable luxury bus rolls out new $15 routes with Fort Worth on the horizon

On the road

A luxury bus service is adding a new Texas stop to its map, and Fort Worth is next.

On April 28, RedCoach will launch service in San Antonio, marking the eighth Texas city served by the company. The new stop will provide luxury transportation between San Antonio and Dallas, as well as nonstop service from San Antonio to Austin, Houston, Richardson, and Waco.

According to RedCoach’s website, the company plans to expand in the near future to Fort Worth and San Marcos.

A spokeswoman confirms to CultureMap, "We don’t have a date set for Fort Worth, but we are actively analyzing."

RedCoach is known for its comfortable rides and fares priced as low as $15 each way.

“We understand that the travel industry is causing stress for residents with increased gas, airline, and car rental prices, so RedCoach is thrilled to add a San Antonio stop to our Texas routes," Florencia Cirigliano, vice president of marketing and sales at RedCoach, says in a news release. "We have now completed the ‘Texas Triangle’ and are serving the state’s five largest cities.”

(Surely they don't think Waco is bigger than Fort Worth?)

The transportation company serves Texas with 26-seat luxury buses featuring amenities such as bed-like seats that recline up to 140 degrees, complimentary Wi-Fi, 110-volt power outlets, on-board entertainment, reserved seating, and no baggage fees.

Last October, RedCoach launched nonstop routes serving Dallas, Austin, Houston, Waco, and College Station. In February, RedCoach added two stops in Katy and Richardson and conducted a flash sale with $1.50 fares.

The San Antonio stop is at 165 Bowie St., near the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter.

Dallas-Fort Worth drives onto list of Texas metros with worst traffic congestion

be prepared to stop

Honk if you hate DFW traffic! According to a new study, you’re more than justified in laying on the horn to express frustration over North Texas' clogged roads.

The study, released by geolocation technology company TomTom, shows the typical Dallas-Fort Worth driver wasted 39 hours last year due to traffic congestion. DFW's traffic congestion rate was 17 percent. (This means average travel times in jammed-up traffic were 17 percent longer than they were in uncongested traffic.)

"In 2021, an increase in congestion levels was seen in Dallas-Fort Worth," the study says. "The data suggests the average travel time increased by 2 minutes per day."

According to the report, October 1 was the worst traffic day in DFW, with a congestion rate of 26 percent.

On the whole, DFW drivers experience 21 percent congestion during morning rush hour (6 extra minutes per 30-minute trip) and 35 percent during evening rush hour (11 extra minutes per 30-minute trip).

"How much extra time was spent driving in rush hours over the year? 67 hours = 2 days 19 hours," the report says.

Dallas-Fort Worth ranked fourth in Texas, 37th in the U.S., and 305th in the world for traffic snarls. Congestion was up 4 percent from 2020 but down 2 percent from 2019.

While those figures highlight the drive-me-up-a-wall status of DFW commutes, at least it's not Houston, where drivers wasted 46 hours in traffic last year.

According to the survey, Houston ranks first in Texas, 16th in the U.S., and 214th in the world for snarled traffic in 2021. The city's traffic congestion went up 4 percent compared with 2020 but went down 4 percent compared with pre-pandemic 2019.

“Bottlenecks around the state continue to waste time and money, further damaging the already fragile supply chain,” John Esparza, president and CEO of the Texas Trucking Association, says in a news release. “With the newly available federal resources for infrastructure projects, there’s no excuse — these bottlenecks must be addressed. A reliable and stable transportation network is essential to our economy — just like the trucking industry.”

Here’s how other major Texas cities fared in the TomTom study:

  • McAllen ranked second in Texas, 18th in the U.S., and 218th in the world for traffic congestion. Time wasted in traffic last year for a typical driver: 46 hours. Congestion rate: 20 percent. Congestion up 4 percent from 2020 and up 1 percent from 2019.
  • Austin ranked third in Texas, 21st in the U.S., and 221st in the world for traffic congestion. Time wasted in traffic last year for a typical driver: 46 hours. Congestion rate: 20 percent. Congestion up 2 percent from 2020 and down 7 percent from 2019.
  • San Antonio ranked fifth in Texas, 41st in the U.S., and 318th in the world for traffic congestion. Time wasted in traffic last year for a typical driver: 36 hours. Congestion rate: 16 percent. Congestion up 3 percent from 2020 and down 3 percent from 2019.
  • El Paso ranked sixth in Texas, 44th in the U.S., and 324th in the world for traffic congestion. Time wasted in traffic last year for a typical driver: 36 hours. Congestion rate: 16 percent. Congestion up 4 percent from 2020 and the same as 2019.

Not surprisingly, the TomTom study awards New York City the title of the worst-congested place in the country. In 2021, the typical New York driver wasted 80 hours in traffic, with a 35 percent congestion rate.

Racking up a congestion rate of 62 percent last year, Istanbul, Turkey, claimed the title of the world’s worst city for traffic. There, motorists wasted 142 hours in traffic in 2021.

14 things to know before you go to Parade of Lights 2021 in Fort Worth

Lights fantastic

Downtown Fort Worth will light up with holiday spirit once again, as the GM Financial Parade of Lights returns, in-person, on Sunday, November 21.

Themed "Making Spirits Bright," this marks its 39th year as the city’s official kick-off to the holiday season (last year it was done virtually), and attendees can expect more than 100 festive floats adorned with holiday decor and over half a million sparkling lights, plus marching bands and carolers, sparkling antique cars, precision equestrian units, festive horse-drawn carriages, and the big arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus.

But first you've got to get there. Here's what to know about road closures, parking, COVID considerations, and more before you head downtown. All information is provided by the parade organizers, and more can be found on their website.

COVID considerations: We're listing this first because it could be a deal-breaker for some still concerned about community spread of COVID-19. There will be no pandemic precautions in place — no crowd limits, social distancing, mask requirements, or proof of negative test/vaccination. "Masks are optional," a spokesperson confirms.

Time and place: The parade begins at 6 pm Sunday, November 21 near the intersection of Weatherford and Throckmorton streets. The whole parade takes about 40 minutes.

When to arrive: Traffic starts getting congested by 3 or 4 pm. Organizers urge parade-goers, especially those with reserved seats, to arrive no later than 4:30 pm. Refunds will not be given if parade-goers are unable to make it to their reserved seats due to traffic or congestion.

Street closures: They begin as early as 6 am Sunday. Closures include portions of Weatherford Street, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd streets, Taylor, Lamar, Burnett, Cherry, and Florence streets. Spur 280 from Interstate 35 will close at 4 pm. For a full list of street and intersection closures and times, check this very detailed chart.

Parking: Downtown garages offer free parking, and there are many lots available. Hint: Visit this Fort Worth parking site for many nearby options. Do not, under any circumstances, park at bagged meters.

Navigating there: Organizers say to turn off your GPS unit and use this map. "Determine where you would like to sit along the route, and then approach from that direction into downtown," they say. "Try to stay on the side of your viewing area and do not attempt to drive all the way through downtown to get to your seats. Come in from that side. There are plenty of streets accessing downtown, and you do not have to come in Spur 280."

Public transportation: If you've never tried it, this normally would be an excellent night to start (see traffic congestion, above). But, some alerts and advice:

  • The Trinity Railway Express (“TRE”) will not operate at all on Sunday.
  • TEXRail will offer park-and-ride opportunities at both the North Side Station (2829 Decatur Ave.) and the Fort Worth T&P Station (221 W. Lancaster Ave.). The North Side Station has an overflow lot at 3001 Decatur Ave. Frequency on Sunday will be increased to a train every 30 minutes to help move riders in and out of downtown more quickly, they say.
  • Bus service isn't the best idea. "Bus service will not be an optimal alternative due to traffic congestion leading up to the start time of the Parade," organizers say. "Additionally, many routes stop running on early on Sunday with the exception of routes 1, 2, 46 and 89. These routes will operate on 15-minute frequency and run until around 11 pm on Sunday." Check the Trinity Metro website for specific route times.

Parade route: It snakes through downtown, beginning at Throckmorton and Weatherford streets; then moves south on Commerce Street to 9th Street; yonder to Houston Street; and north to 2nd Street. Then it goes west on 2nd to Throckmorton; then south to 3rd for its final destination. "Please note the staging area is located in all areas west of Throckmorton Street. The parade will NOT be moving in these areas," organizers say on the website. There's a helpful map here.

Paid viewing: There is paid, reserved seating along the route, and as of press time, there was plenty still available. Tickets are $15-$37.95, with discounts available for seniors and children. Choose your seat and reserve tickets here.

Free viewing: Almost all sidewalks along the parade route will be open for free viewing.

Restrooms: Portable restrooms will be set up around the parade route.

Live broadcast: The parade will be broadcast live from 6-8 pm on KTXA-TV (TXA-21), online at www.fortworthparadeoflights.org, and via the Parade of Lights’ Facebook event page: www.facebook.com/ParadeofLightsFW. The parade will also re-air on KTXA-TV (TXA-21) on Christmas Eve, December 24, from 7-9 pm. You can follow along on Facebook or Instagram using the official hashtag, #ParadeOfLights2021.

Grand marshal: This year's grand marshal is Opal Lee, the 95-year-old retired educator, social impact leader, author, humanitarian, and “grandmother of Juneteenth.” Read more about her most recent victory in bringing a National Juneteenth Museum to Fort Worth here.

Tree lighting: There's not the usual tree-lighting ceremony to coincide with Parade of Lights this year. The Sundance Square Christmas tree will be up, and lit, but due to health and safety concerns, they say, they are not holding a ceremony and Santa will not be appearing there. Read more about that here.

'80s heartthrob Bryan Adams brings 2023 tour to Fort Worth with rock 'n' roll-icon guest artist

Summer of '23

Canadian singer/songwriter Bryan Adams, who's been entertaining audiences on stage and screen for four decades, is coming to Fort Worth for a show at Dickies Arena - and he's bringing along a very special guest. Adams is teaming up with rock 'n' roll icons Joan Jett and the Blackhearts for his "So Happy It Hurts Tour," stopping in Fort Worth on June 29, 2023.

The U.S. tour kicks off on June 6 in Baltimore, Maryland, and ends August 3 with a show in Seattle. He'll visit just two Texas cities - Fort Worth and Sugar Land, outside Houston, for a show at Smart Financial Centre on June 28.

Adams is touring in support of his 15th studio album, So Happy It Hurts, which was released March 11, 2022 via BMG. The album is nominated for Best Rock Performance at the upcoming 2023 Grammy awards, taking place Sunday, February 5.

Adams also is riding the wave as the lyricist for Pretty Woman – The Musical, the Broadway musical based on the famed Julia Roberts-Richard Gere rom-com. The touring musical currently is on stage at Dallas' Music Hall at Fair Park (through February 5) and is coming to Fort Worth's Bass Hall, February 7-12.

Barrier-breaking rock 'n' roll badass Joan Jett is known for Top 40 hits such as "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You," and "Crimson and Clover." Joan Jett and the Blackhearts toured last year with Def Leppard, Motley Crue, and Poison. Bad Reputation, a 2018 documentary about Jett's life, is now streaming.

Tickets for the "So Happy It Hurts Tour" go on sale at 12 pm Friday, February 3 via ticketmaster.com.
