Updated 12/7, 3pWe are still working to restore light rail. This involves cleaning and testing switches and making some equipment repairs. We have also cleared some trees that were knocked down by the storm. We have also put out more than 23 tons of ice melt on our operation and passenger facilities.
We hope to be able to restore some level of light rail service Monday. There's simply lots to do to get the tracks, overhead power lines and rail cars ready. We will make sure we can operate safely before we start. We believe we will have the best opportunity to make progress on this after the temperature gets above freezing. Current models suggest that will happen Sunday morning.
In the meantime buses continue covering the rail corridors. Click here to view more information about the DART Rail Disruption Bus Shuttles. TRE is operating normally.
We appreciate your patience. We are working very hard to have light rail back in operation Monday morning.
