DART Takes You There
Thirty years ago, citizens in our Service Area voted to create DART and improve their transportation options. Over the past three decades, the agency developed a regional transit network that moves people throughout the DART Service Area and connects to transit systems serving greater Fort Worth and Denton County.
The final piece of the current capital expansion is a southern extension of the Blue Line from our Ledbetter Station to the University of North Texas at Dallas, with a stop at Camp Wisdom Road. Opening in 2016, the extension makes the university more accessible, provides new stimulus for economic development and improves light rail access for residents of southern Dallas.
With the initial rail system nearly built, the agency and DART Service-Area cities now are identifying and prioritizing projects for the next 30 years. DART Board members and agency leaders also are continuing discussions with officials in nearby municipalities about becoming part of DART.
Between current initiatives and future plans, DART is well-poised to address mobility challenges in our fast-growing region and take people wherever they need to go for years to come.
