DART meetings

Proposed Bus Service Changes in conjunction with Light Rail Expansion

DART is holding a series of community and public meetings to gather input on proposed bus service changes scheduled for May and July 2002.

The meetings will focus on bus service affected by expansion of the DART light rail. The Blue Line extends to LBJ/Skillman Station in May 2002. The Red Line extends to four Dallas stations: a new aerial Park Lane Station replacing the temporary station at Park Lane, Walnut Hill Station, Forest Lane Station, and LBJ/Central Station in July 2002. Richardson rail stations: Spring Valley Station, Arapaho Center Station and Galatyn Park Station open July 2002.
