DART expands On-Call service, adjusts bus routes
DART is responding to customer demand and improving service efficiency by restructuring bus service in Garland, Irving, Oak Cliff, Richardson, the Park Cities, East Dallas, and North Dallas. In addition, the popular DART On-Call service is being improved and expanded to serve Lake Highlands and west Rowlett. The changes begin Monday, February 6.
To improve performance and connections to DART Rail, selected bus routes will be modified in Irving, Garland, Oak Cliff, Rowlett, Richardson, Park Cities, North Dallas and East Dallas.
For detailed information on DART's modified bus schedule and new destination information, pick up your copy of the February 6 Bus Service Change brochure, now available on buses, at DART transit centers and the downtown Dallas DART Store, or online at www.DART.org and www.transporteDART.org. Information is also available by calling DART at 214-979-1111.
New DART On-Call service
In Lake Highlands, bus routes 534 and 569 are being replaced with curb-to-curb DART On-Call curb-to-curb van service linking neighborhoods to White Rock Station. DART On-Call whisks you between your home and nearby rail stations, bus transit centers, shopping centers, grocery stores and other destinations within specific zones.
DART On-Call service in the East Rowlett area will expand to the west (to Rowlett Road and Highway 66) with some modification to the zone boundaries in the northwest part of the city.
DART On-Call has new hours of service in North Dallas -- from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. -- and in Richardson, service now runs from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Within specific zones, DART On-Call customers may schedule pick-ups directly from their homes or nearby stations to popular destinations. Trips may be scheduled up to a week in advance and must be scheduled at least an hour in advance by calling DART On-Call service Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 214-828-6556.
