Illinois Station Platform Extension Rescheduled To Begin October 14th


The platform extension project at Illinois Station has been postponed until Monday, October 14. Customers are reminded that the heavy equipment required for this work will be located in the lot just north of East Louisiana Street and these parking spaces will be unavailable until further notice.

The station will remain in operation during the construction period; however, you are urged to use caution and observe all warning and directional signage. When completed, this very important project will allow three-car trains to serve this station, bringing more convenience and comfort to Illinois Station customers and to the entire DART system.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.


Rail Weekend rail service suspended
Downtown Dallas Only
through Fall 2019

NOTICE: DART Rail will operate weekend service in downtown Dallas
on Saturday, August 31 through the end of the State Fair of Texas. There will be no track improvement work done on these dates.

Rail replacement work resumes in downtown Dallas following the State Fair of Texas.

Track Improvements and Rail Replacement will:

  • Create a smoother ride through downtown
  • Eliminate ongoing maintenance issues
  • Increase the number of areas where trains can switch tracks, which will reduce service disruptions

During Construction:

DART Rail in downtown Dallas will be discontinued each weekend beginning March 30, for roughly six months, to allow track replacement along Pacific Avenue and Bryan Street. DART will replace worn light rail tracks, add and repair crossovers, and repair streets and drainage along the rail corridor.

Interrupted Rail Segments:

Several shuttle bus routes will be in operation

Two routes stop at every Central Business District station. Two express routes connect Pearl/Arts District Station, West End Station and Victory Station. One express route travels between Mockingbird Station and Bachman Station.

Look for the sign

Buses will load and unload at the red "Rail Disruption" bus stop located near each station. Signs on the rail platform will point you to these bus stops.
