August 2018 Service Improvements

Service Change Overview

Most of the service modifications planned for August 27, 2018, are minor route adjustments, designed to improve on-time performance and dependability. On other routes, detours implemented earlier in the year will become permanent. These are detailed below.

Fare Change Overview

Of primary concern to customers will be the new fare structure, which, for the most part, is scheduled to debut Saturday, August 18. A general description is included on the next page, with more details available on the newly enhanced GoPass® app and GoPass Tap Card system at 214-979-1111. Also, a major part of August improvements is the arrival of GoLink on-demand service in far north Plano, an area with no previous transit service.
For additional information on Best Fares, Fare Capping and use of the GoPass app or Tap Card, please visit DART.org/FareRestructure.

GoLink  reaches Far North Plano

DART's personalized shuttle service, GoLink, comes to an area with no previous transit service on August 27, with the debut of the all-new Far North Plano zone. Hours of operation will be 5 a.m.-8 p.m., in an area bounded by State Highway 121, Custer Road, Spring Creek Parkway and Ohio Drive.

Trips may be booked by utilizing the new GoLink app (search "TapRide" in the App Store or Google Play Store, then choose "GoLink/DART" under "Select System") or by calling 214-452-1827.

Detours to become permanent

161

  Due to the Southern Gateway project, buses will continue to detour over the Houston and Jefferson viaducts and be unable to use the Interstate 35E HOV lanes for approximately three years. Trips which formerly traveled the HOV lane will continue to exit the freeway at Ledbetter Drive and display a "VIA LEDBETTER" destination sign, both outbound and inbound; all others will be designated "VIA KIEST."
