DART On-Call comes to Glenn Heights
Glenn Heights becomes DART's eighth On-Call location on October 3. The van service picks up customers anywhere in the city limits and connects them to the Glenn Heights Park & Ride for express bus service direct to downtown Dallas.
Using DART On-Call is easy. To schedule a trip, call 972-880-7302 a minimum of one hour and up to a week in advance. Reservations are not required to board vans at the Glenn Heights Park & Ride at :25 and :55 past the hour. Vans will be available Monday thru Friday, from 5:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. and from 3:45 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Round-trip van/bus service to and from downtown requires a $4.50 Premium Day Pass or a DART Premium Monthly Pass. One-way service to or from the park and ride lot is $2.25.
Route 206 Glenn Heights Express service previously provided along Ovilla Road, Hampton Road, Milas Lane, Glenn Lane and Bear Creek Road will be replaced by the new DART On-Call service.
