Faces of DART is highlighting the stories of everyday North Texans who benefit from a strong transit system. Just take a look at Oliver Aguilar, an insurance adjuster who says transit helps make his daily commute to the office less stressful and his days more productive.
Today, we’re pleased to introduce another of the many Faces of DART—local business owner Bob Sambol.
Check out the video below to hear what transit means to Bob – and how it’s helping drive employment and entertainment opportunities in our region.
Bob is president of a property management company that oversees the more than a dozen local restaurants that make up the first phase of the Trinity Groves development, just across the river from downtown Dallas. Together, these businesses employ roughly 500 North Texans—with more development opportunities planned for the future.
As Bob mentions, DART plays an important role in this innovative project—not only by providing customers and visitors greater convenience, but also by attracting a stronger, more diverse workforce to help these North Texas businesses succeed. No matter how you use it—or even if you use it at all—public transit is helping power a stronger, more vibrant economy across our entire region.
We’ll be back with another one of our Faces of DART profiles soon—in the meantime, do you have a story to tell about how transit impacts your life? Share it on the Faces of DART page today!
