Ride responsibly this St. Patrick’s Day with DART, Uber and MADD


Let DART and Uber do the driving this Saturday when Dallas’ St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Festival and concert take the streets of East Dallas.

DART is adding rail service on the main event day, March 14, and Uber is providing $20 off to first time users with promo code RIDESPD to help folks get to and from the rail stations and anywhere else they need to travel. This transportation combination gives parade and partygoers a safe and reliable door-to-door alternative to driving.

DART service starts early with trains every 10 minutes southbound from Parker Road Station and northbound from West End Station. Runners and parade goers can take advantage of added trains and capacity with Red and Orange Line trains from Plano operating between 6:28 a.m. to 7:08 p.m. to either Mockingbird or Lovers Lane stations for the Dash Down Greenville 5K or the St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival on Greenville Avenue.

Passengers who normally use Routes 502 and 583 at Lovers Lane Station will be unable to do so for much of the day Saturday. Both routes will be detoured from Lovers Lane to serve Mockingbird Station until approximately 6 p.m. or whenever Greenville is re-opened to traffic.

Have fun, be safe and #rideresponsiblyspd with DART, Uber and MADD.
