DART’s buses have changed a lot over the years. The agency now is introducing a new fleet of seven zero-emission electric buses. These bright magenta-and-yellow, battery-powered vehicles are being used for the D-Link route.
D-Link is the easy way to get around downtown Dallas. The buses run seven days a week and connect to riders to arts, entertainment, culture and dining. The best part: It’s a free ride, thanks to a partnership between DART, the city of Dallas and Downtown Dallas, Inc.
The new seven new zero-emission electric buses are partially funded by a $7.6 million grant that also funded the infrastructure for two overhead chargers installed at Convention Center Station. The Proterra Catalyst 35 buses join the electric light rail trains as zero-emission vehicles in DART’s transit fleet.
