Fort Worth Central Station opened on December 12, 2001 as the Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC). Prior to the ITC's opening, transit services operated independently without a unified hub in downtown Fort Worth. Trinity Metro bus lines converged at a transit mall along the one-way couplet corridor of Houston Street and Throckmorton Street, Amtrak and Greyhound Lines were served by the former Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Passenger Station, built in 1900.
Fort Worth Central Station is located north of two former railroad stations: the Santa Fe Freight Building, built in 1938, now serving as the University of Texas at Arlington's Fort Worth Education Center, and the 1889 Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Passenger Station which was renovated and renamed to the Fort Worth Union Depot which later served as Fort Worth's Amtrak station from 1971 to 2002. This building is now a party/banquet facility called Ashton Depot following a recent restoration.
TEXRail began service to Fort Worth Central Station on January 10, 2019.
On March 25, 2019, the Trinity Metro board of directors unanimously voted to rename the ITC as Fort Worth Central Station.
