DART Service Change

Effective Monday, August 17, 2015

New Parkland Routes Highlight August 17th Bus Service Changes

In conjunction with the official opening of the new Parkland Memorial Hospital, DART will restructure its campus bus network to serve the new and existing facilities, employee parking areas, and both the TRE's Medical/Market Center and DART's Southwestern Medical District/Parkland rail stations, effective Monday, August 17, 2015. Current Parkland Shuttle Route 703 will be discontinued and replaced by two new routes, 704 and 705. See maps and detailed information on these routes, plus additional minor services changes also taking place on that date elsewhere in this brochure.

NEW ROUTE 704

This new route will provide a link between the old and new hospitals as well as various employee parking lots and Southwestern Medical District/Parkland Station. Buses will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with approximate frequencies of six minutes (peak), ten minutes (off-peak) and 20 minutes (overnight).

NEW ROUTE 705

This route will also serve both hospitals as well as connecting the neighboring rail stations. Service will be 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, approximately seven minutes (peak) and 10 minutes (off peak) apart.

Rides on the two new routes will continue to be free, and buses will sport the same familiar Parkland colors. Smaller vehicles will replace the 40-ft buses currently in operation. NOTE: UT-Southwestern shuttle service (Routes 822 and 823) will be unaffected by these changes.
