Catch the Spirit of the Season on DART
Use DART this season to fly past the holiday hustle and bustle. Our network of trains and buses helps you breeze through shopping traffic, zip to holiday festivities, and zoom to the Metroplex's favorite destinations of the season.
Mall parking lots mean major traffic jams when seasonal shopping starts the day after Thanksgiving. But you'll sail past the snarls as DART and the TRE take you to gift-buying destinations both famous and flourishing:
Neiman Marcus in downtown Dallas - DART delivers you to the granddaddy of Dallas retailers, the flagship Neiman's store in the heart of Dallas' resurgent central business district. Be sure to check out the memorable window displays. Ride DART Rail to St. Paul Station and walk two blocks to the Main St. entrance.
West Village - Uptown's trendy new shopping address offers furniture, fashion, decor and more. Ride DART Rail to Cityplace Station, then stroll or take the free M-Line Streetcar to West Village's treasure chest of gift ideas.
NorthPark Center - The shopping standard of excellence in the Southwest, NorthPark offers more than 120 stores and restaurants. Don't miss The Trains at NorthPark, a model-railroad delight for children of all ages. Ride DART Rail to Park Lane Station, and then catch the NorthPark Center Shuttle (Route 702) to the mall.
Sundance Square - An eclectic mix of gifts, home furnishings, jewelry and accessories awaits in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. Monday through Saturday, ride the TRE from Dallas Union Station to Fort Worth ITC Station, then walk or ride Fort Worth T bus Route 1 to Sundance.
When shopping at West Village or Sundance Square, you can take advantage of destination deals, discounts and other money-saving offers for anyone showing a valid DART or T ticket or pass. Participating merchants display a destination deals decal on their window or countertop.
