Major Bus Service Changes Effective August 12, 2019


WE'RE CHANGING!

The North Texas region has evolved, and DART has too, to better meet your needs!

Beginning August 12, we reworked nearly half of our bus routes to get you to your destination quicker and easier. You will see more logical and more direct routes, which will improve connections and service for the entire DART System! You'll have expanded service hours on weekdays and weekends, more frequency for some routes and better on-time arrivals with our new adjusted schedules.

MORE DIRECT ROUTES We're adding new buses with USB charging stations at every seat! Fewer bus stops will make for faster trips. And we are looking to add more bus stop shelters, benches and lighting.
