We Are North Texas’s Mobility Manager

No North Texan is the same. We’re business professionals, we’re parents, we’re students, we’re small business owners. The underlying thread that connects us all is movement; each one of us navigating our way around this great region to get to work on time, drop off our kids at school, run errands, and connect with the people we love. DART is here to help make that flurry of movement a little easier.

A Serious Responsibility

As mobility manager for North Texas, we take our job seriously. We work every day to ensure that we can meet the diverse mobility needs of our unique region. That’s why DART supports a multi-modal transit system, so you can access and experience all that our region has to offer.

No two days are the same in the lives of North Texans. DART is here to make sure we have the transit services in place to make the jigsaw puzzle of our lives fit together. We can’t do it with just one type of transit. That’s why we offer more than 93 miles of light rail, 625 buses, 11,973 bus stops, and 64 light rail stations. We know folks need options when it comes to mobility. North Texans should be able to choose the type of transit that’s best to get them wherever they need to go.

Look at All the Options!

As North Texas’s mobility manager, DART also understands that our residents do not stay in one place. Some prefer to work in one of North Texas’s unique small towns and live under the bright lights of downtown Dallas downtown. Others may commit to the hustle and bustle during the day time and head to quieter pastures in the evening. DART’s service area covers more than 700 square miles, so you can live in the neighborhood that works for you while having access to your job – and a host of other opportunities.

It’s not just commutes that DART’s concerned about. We’re also are thinking about the whole experience of movement for North Texans. How can you easily get to the State Fair of Texas, a Mavericks game, or the best new restaurant you’ve heard about in Carrolton? Whether you’re traveling by car, rail, bus, ride-share, or streetcar, we are committed to making your trip affordable, reliable, and safe (whether you’re using DART or not!).

It’s Our People

From those who have grown up here to those who adopted North Texas as home, all contribute daily to make our region a destination. We’re growing even more day by day. In fact, North Texas welcomed over 140,000 new residents since just 2015. We are a dynamic, unique, and diverse community that requires a transit system that can support the different lives we lead.

Maybe you’re a student that depends on DART to get you to class on time, or perhaps you’re a business professional that relies on public transit to make a morning meeting, or connect with and experience new cuisine, catch that new musical, or even take a chance and follow your dream of opening up your very own business. No matter what type of North Texan you are, DART is here for you.

    I love DART. Big issue. We need to get Allen and McKinney to get on board. I have a adult of 20 years old who needs to ride the train and dies not drive. There is a huge need up here and getting to the Parker station is not an answer. People with disabilities have no options. I would also love to have DART available to Arlington to see the Rangers, Cowboys, go to Six Flags and UT Arlington. This would save a huge amount of traffic and congestion! Please!! Also get a college student home easier who doesn’t drive. TRE is not that close. Thank you!

      Thanks for your input, Tracey. We continue conversations with prospective service area cities. Allen and McKinney are two of them. We recommend you continue sharing your concerns about transit to your city officials.

    It would be HELPFUL, especially to new passengers if ALL of the “tv”monitors on the buses would provide information not JUST DART advertisements. New riders board buses daily for the first time, unsure 100% if the bus they board stops where they need. While some buses have the monitors programed to provide stop by stop visual AND verbal stops. Seversl buses I’ve boarded leave riders leaning over, anxously trying see what’s next stop or asking other passengers for assistance as not to miss they’re stop. Regardless of whether the tools are controlled by the operations folk at the main hub, as I’ve told by drivers, or controlled by the Drivers/Conductors themselves, the Bus monitors, the Route names on the bus as well as the Trains route names should provide the service and accuracy for which we pay…..for new riders, visitors, AND seasoned passengers.

    The bus 385 runs every 30 minutes which is too far apart in time. I wish DART could have the bus run every 15 minutes in the morning and the afternoon Especially during rush hours.

    I wish route 532 would run on the weekends. Many of us walk a long way and cross busy intersection to get to a bus on saturday and sunday.
