DART PLANS TO RESTORE BUS SERVICE

A virtual Public Hearing, and an in-person Community Meeting, were held to receive comments on proposed system-wide service adjustments aimed at gradual restoration of service in effect prior to April 6, 2020. Under the proposal: certain routes and services would be returned to pre-pandemic status; some routes would increase frequency due to returning ridership; others will be evaluated for improvement based on performance; and two GoLink zones would be added. These proposed changes would result in a small number of routes being eliminated or replaced.

Recommendations fall under four basic categories:
  1. Higher volume bus routes and light rail service would offer 20-minute frequency Weekdays until 7 p.m., and 30-minute frequency thereafter (Service affected: Red, Blue, Green and Orange lines, Routes 11, 404, 409, 466, 467, 583, 592).

  2. High ridership bus routes would return to normal pre-pandemic service levels (Routes 2, 31, 36, 39, 52, 59, 63, 81/82, 110, 164, 360, 401, 408, 426, 445, 486, 488, 527, 528, 533, 534, 547, 549, 554).

  3. Bus routes not included in categories 1, 2 or 4, plus the TRE, would continue to operate at the modified emergency service levels until they meet ridership-based criteria to resume normal service.

    40 routes and TRE could resume normal service in 2021 (12, 19, 24, 26, 29, 60, 76, 111, 161, 402, 403, 405, 410, 415, 428, 444, 451, 452, 453, 463, 475, 501, 506, 522, 524, 525, 526, 529, 531, 535, 538, 541, 542, 544, 551, 553, 555, 574, 593, 597, TRE).

    48 routes will remain at emergency service levels (21, 35, 84, 183, 205, 206, 208, 278, 283, 333, 347, 350, 361, 362, 372, 374, 376, 377, 378, 380, 500, 502, 504, 505, 507, 508, 509, 510, 513, 514, 515, 516, 521, 532, 536, 560, 566, 568, 571, 582, 591, 594, 595, 702, 749, 841, 843, 870).

  4. Lower ridership routes with alternate or duplicate service available would be discontinued, modified, or replaced (Routes 27, 42, 155, 210, 211, 385*, 585**, 840*, 887).
* Two new GoLink Zones, Southeast Garland and South Irving, will be introduced to replace routes 385 and 840. These GoLink services would operate on weekdays only.
** The proposal includes modifying route 585 to operate exclusively between Forest Lane and LBJ/Central Station.

Additionally, the Western Carrollton GoLink Zone, which has been operating on a trial basis since May 11, 2020, would become permanent for the duration of outside funding.

If approved by the Board, these changes would be implemented on Monday, October 19, 2020.
