DART and TRE Make Christmas and New Year’s Eve Plans

HAPPY holidays

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) are operating on an adjusted schedule for Christmas and New Year’s. For the first time New Year’s Eve features free rides and later rail service thanks to a new Miller Lite partnership.

DART and TRE customers will have a new safe and free alternative to driving on Dec. 31 beginning at 6 p.m. DART rail will operate until 2:30 a.m., all DART buses will operate a regular schedule, and the last TRE train will depart at 1 a.m. from Union Station on New Year’s Eve. Miller Lite Free Rides® was launched 28 years ago and has provided rides to more than 5 million people across the country. This is the first year the program has been in Dallas-Fort Worth.
