DART Fact Sheets
The 14-mile Orange Line was a key component of a regional rail expansion that led to the growth of DART's rail network to 90 miles by 2014. The Orange Line runs parallel with the Green Line through Downtown Dallas to Bachman Station in Northwest Dallas. From Bachman Station, the Orange Line heads northwest to the Las Colinas Urban Center (opened July 30, 2012), continues to Belt Line (opened December 3, 2012) and to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (opened August 18, 2014).
The nearly five-mile DART Rail Blue Line extension to Rowlett opened December 3, 2012. The light rail line will forever link the downtowns of Rowlett and Garland, two important member cities.
The opening of the full Green Line on December 6, 2010 grew the DART Rail System from 48 to 72 miles, a major growth spurt leading to a 93-mile network by 2019. The first phase of the 28-mile, $1.8 billion project extended southeast of downtown Dallas to Fair Park and opened on September 14, 2009 along with daily service to Victory Station.
DART updated its fleet of 115 light rail vehicles (LRV) by inserting a new, low-floor insert between the existing sections of the vehicle adding seating capacity and improving access through level boarding. The newly modified vehicles began service on June 23, 2008 with car #151.
