How to Ride
With 64 rail stations and 13 bus transfer facilities, your DART pass is like a key to the city — putting you within steps of the places you go every day.
DART buses and trains operate daily from approximately 5 a.m. to midnight. DART Rail offers service every 5-10 minutes during rush hours and every 20-30 minutes during midday and on nights and weekends. Bus schedules vary by neighborhood. In addition, service times and schedules vary on holidays. Use the online DART Trip Planner, Google Transit or contact DART Customer Service at 214-979-1111 for complete information.
With over 130 routes, our buses take you from here to there – and everywhere in between. Chances are, there’s a bus stop close to your home or business that connects with DART Rail or other bus routes, and now one Local fare allows you to travel to all the cities in our service area.
The system consists of four lines. The Red Line links Westmoreland in West Oak Cliff north to Parker Road in Plano, the Blue Line from Ledbetter in South Oak Cliff to Downtown Garland will celebrate a 4.5 mile expansion to Downtown Rowlett in December 2012. The two-year old Green Line connects Pleasant Grove in southeast Dallas to the far northwest suburb of Carrollton, and the newest, the Orange Line, supplements the busiest portions of the Red and Green lines plus extending light rail service into Las Colinas and Irving, stretching to Belt Line Road, also in December 2012. This line will ultimately reach DFW Airport's Terminal A in 2014. All rail lines serve downtown Dallas.
