The snowy weather is having a minimal effect on the DART bus and rail systems, but passengers are advised to exercise caution around DART platforms and bus stops as snow accumulation may create slick spots.

Currently:
• DART is treating slick spots on platforms and passenger areas.

• DART buses are subject to local road conditions, but passengers may encounter some delays. The City of Dallas has activated the Ice Force Level 1 to treat roads.

• DART Rail is operating as normal at this time.

Please be safe and stay warm. Keep up with any DART-related weather updates here on DART Daily, or on social media @dartmedia, @dartalerts or on the DART Facebook page.
