Dallas Streetcar to get weekend service, later hours

Street-Car-6CC

The Dallas Streetcar is moving to late nights and weekends. It’s in anticipation of the expansion to the Bishop Arts District later this year.

On Monday, Feb. 15, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, in partnership with the City of Dallas, will begin seven-day a week streetcar service at 9:30 a.m. The cars will run until midnight making connections with the final DART Rail trains at Union Station. The current operation is weekdays only, 5 a.m. to 7:15 p.m.

These expanded hours will allow passengers to explore some of the Dallas Streetcar’s DARTable destinations like the new Roger W. Lytle Disc Golf Course at Founders Park, Jonathon’s Oak Cliff (can’t miss chicken & waffles), El Fenix, Spiral Diner (just in time for Lenten season) and more!

The free streetcar operates along the 1.6 mile route every 30 minutes at all times. Later in 2016, frequency will improve to every 20 minutes at all times with completion of the southern extension to Bishop Arts.

Customers needing earlier trips into Downtown Dallas should consider Route 21 which parallels the Dallas Streetcar as it travels over the Houston and Jefferson Viaducts.

More information is available at DallasCityNews.net, DART.org/DallasStreetcar or by calling 214.979.1111.
