Willie Tyler may live in Dallas, but she’d tell you that her Mississippi roots run deep. Twice a week she rides the Blue Line to Garland to visit her aunt.
“I’m on DART, looking at traffic and I’m thinking: I’m glad I’m not out there,” Tyler said. “I’ve lived in Dallas for three years and have seen more of the city in the past three weeks — and it’s because of DART.”
Her usual commute begins at Southwestern Medical District / Parkland Station where she hops on the Green Line to Downtown Dallas. Once at Pearl/Arts District Station, she transfers to the Blue Line to Downtown Garland Station.
“It’s a quick and peaceful ride,” she said. “You don’t have to stand and wait often because there’s always a train.”
