Celebrate the Dallas Streetcar Extension with a Community Block Party Aug. 27

DallasStreetcarSide13apr15We are celebrating the arrival of the Dallas Streetcar to the Bishop Arts District with a Community Block Party!

Saturday, Aug. 27
9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Bishop Arts District
Corner of West 7th Street and Madison Avenue

That Saturday, you can preview the new streetcar service beginning at 9:30 a.m. Regular service to Bishop Arts District officially begins on Monday, Aug. 29.

With the extension, there are two new stops:
• Sixth Street – Corner of Zang Boulevard and Sixth Street
• Bishop Arts – Corner of Zang Boulevard and West Davis Street

The streetcar will continue to operate seven days a week, from 9:30 a.m. to midnight. However, instead of every 30 minutes, the streetcar now will operate every 20 minutes.

Streetcars are deeply rooted in the history of Bishop Arts District. They first arrived in the area at the turn of the 20th century, and development was built around them. By the mid-1950s, the streetcar disappeared as the era of the automobile took hold.
