Whether catching the train to AAC, grabbing dinner and shopping with friends in one of North Texas’ unique neighborhoods, or exploring new job options, DART connects communities and creates employment, social, and cultural opportunities for our region’s residents and visitors. With a fleet of more than 652 buses, 11,973 bus stops, 64 light rail stations, and 93 miles of light rail, our multi-modal transit network is a conduit for creating community connections and providing access throughout the region. DART is built for:
A Growing Population
More than 220,000 passengers ride DART every day and that number is only getting bigger. With the population estimated to increase by 36 percent (that’s more than 3 million new residents!) in 2040, DART is planning and building to accommodate all of the region’s future transit needs.
Commuting and So Much More
Did you know that DART has a transportation stop, whether rail or bus, within walking distance of more than 30 trade schools, colleges, and universities? Or that you can hop on the Dallas Streetcar to the Bishop Arts District and spend the day exploring bookstores, antique shops, and trying out some hip cuisine? Or that several Fortune 500 companies, including Morgan Stanley, State Farm, and Toyota have moved to the region to be closer to public transit and gain access to a bigger, more diverse employee pool? Whether going to school or work, visiting a museum, or spending a night out on the town, DART gives more people access to all that North Texas has to offer.
Efficiency and Accessibility
DART’s system is designed to get you there efficiently and seamlessly. Trains radiate from the center of Dallas and buses connect train stations to even more of the surrounding communities. You can easily move between different modes of transportation. With free parking available at many locations, transfers between cars, buses, and trains are designed to be quick and easy.
In addition to our extensive fixed-route services, DART offers a number of additional resources to give the people of our region greater travel flexibility and convenience. The online DART trip planner strives to make it easy for riders to plan their trips in advance. Flex service allows customers to request pickups an hour in advance at specific curbside locations. DART On-Call is a personalized transport service giving residents direct access to wherever they need to go.
DART is your transit connection to your community; providing an affordable chance to discover all of the commercial, cultural, social, and educational opportunities North Texas has to offer. With more stations and stops than ever before, DART can get you where you need to go and give you access to more experiences than ever before.
