#TBT: System Plans of the Past

In our series on the system plan, “A Path to 2040,” we are exploring all of the components of the 2040 System Plan DART is planning to present in 2018.

This system plan, however, is not the first plan that DART has put together.  The first one was created in 1983 as Chapter 452 of the Texas Transportation Code requires DART to have a service plan and also created a process for assembling and changing the service plan. The system plan is the long range element of the service plan by Board policy.

Check out our timeline below to learn some interesting facts about Service and System Plans of the past.


Stay tuned to DART’s series, A Path to 2040, to learn more about just how DART creates the vision for the future of transit in North Texas.
