Richland Hills is just 30 minutes east of DFW International Airport. The city's public education is provided by Birdville Independent School District (BISD). BISD is unique in that it pays for graduating seniors' first year tuition at one of the area's five Tarrant County College (TCC) campuses. The closest TCC campus is just two miles from the city.
The city is serviced by two commuter rail lines: Trinity Railway Express travels through downtown Fort Worth, Richland Hills and other NE Tarrant County cities, all the way to Dallas. The proposed Cottonbelt Line, which will cross through the area, will be 62 miles long going from Ft. Worth to the DART red line.
The other major development project underway is the expansion of the IH-820 corridor that borders the northern part of the city. This is the main east-west traffic route for commuters heading from Fort Worth to Dallas and back. The North Tarrant Express (NTE) toll road will consist of a series of major highway improvements to the I-820 and SH-121/183 (Airport Freeway) corridor between I-35 West and Industrial Boulevard in North Tarrant County. The new toll road, completed in 2015, will use an electronic tolling system available from ntta.org. In coordination with the NTE project, the city is currently planning intersection improvements along Boulevard 26 at the intersections of Loop 820, Glenview, and Rufe Snow.
Three public parks provide tennis courts and jogging trails. The NRH2O water park keeps little dippers cool in the summer.
