Proclaiming the City in Motion
DART's Downtown Transitway Mall stretches along Pacific Avenue, from Houston Street in the popular West End, through Thanksgiving Square, and then continues along Bryan Street to Hawkins Street. It includes four light rail stations - West End, Akard, St. Paul, and Pearl.

The mile-long Downtown Transitway Mall in Dallas' Central Business District (CBD) provides a new opportunity to enhance the economic vitality, beauty, and safety of the area. The mall can re-energize downtown as a center where people work, come for cultural, shopping, and recreational purposes, and even reside.

Akard Station ClockRecognizing this, the community committee and design team created a user-friendly transitway mall designed to foster a sense of vibrancy throughout the area -- including the spaces between the stations -- and to celebrate the city's past, present, and future.

To achieve this, they chose a central theme, "The City in Motion" -- motion referring to both the transit system and to the city's growth and development.
