Dallas Streetcar reaches the Bishop Arts District

City officials, DART staff, residents and others celebrated the opening of the Dallas Streetcar extension to the Bishop Arts District during a ceremony Saturday, which was followed by a community block party.

Riders now have six places to board with the addition of two stops along the new, 0.75-mile segment: along Zang Boulevard at Sixth Street and the other at Zang Boulevard at W. Davis Street, located at the eastern edge of the Bishop Arts District.

The Dallas Streetcar will continue to operate seven days a week, from 9:30 a.m. to midnight. However, instead of every 30 minutes, frequency improves to every 20 minutes.

“With extended service into this vibrant North Oak Cliff community, we are greatly enhancing connectivity for residents and visitors,” said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. “The streetcar extension, as well as the enhancements in service, makes the treasure that is Bishop Arts more accessible.”
