CentrePort/DFW Airport station is a Trinity Railway Express (TRE) commuter rail station in Fort Worth, Texas. It is located on Statler Boulevard just south of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, it opened on September 16, 2000, and is a station on the TRE commuter line, serving the CentrePort business park, the headquarters of American Airlines, and all terminals of DFW Airport. Connections to all DFW airport terminals are free but require riding two shuttle buses: first the shuttle to the DFW Remote South lot, then connecting there to the terminal shuttles.

From April 2013 to December 2017, the Metro Arlington Xpress shuttle connected the station to downtown Arlington, including the University of Texas at Arlington campus; the service has since been replaced by a ride-sharing service operated by Via.[2]

Shuttle service between CentrePort and DFW Airport is scheduled to be discontinued in 2019;[3] the TRE Link was scheduled to open on April 15 as a replacement.[4]
