DART Rail Construction To Affect Service Between 3 Downtown Stations
DART Rail service between West End and Convention Center stations will be suspended during late evening and early morning hours on the weekends of September 10-12 and September 17-19.
Shuttle buses will replace the regularly scheduled rail service between the two stations with intermediate stops at Union Station for passengers transferring to and from the Trinity Railway Express or Amtrak. Rail service will be replaced with the bus shuttles beginning at 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 8 p.m. on Sundays. Rail service will resume at 8 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Rail service will resume at its regular time on Mondays.
This interruption will allow completion of signal work on the new DART Rail extension to Victory Station at American Airlines Center, scheduled to open in November.
