Printer-Friendly PDF

DART Rail is operating normally this morning except for the Blue Line section between LBJ/Skillman and Rowlett where bus connections are in place. All other DART Rail lines are operating a regular weekday schedule.

We are still working to restore service on this nine mile section of the Blue Line, but it is not expected to happen before Tuesday afternoon due to the extent of ice buildup, cold temperatures and lack of sunshine to help melt the ice.

Blue Line customers from Rowlett and Garland can find parking and rail service at the LBJ/Skillman Station, located north of Interstate 635 between Skillman Street and Miller Road. Parking and express bus service to Downtown Dallas via Route 283 is available from the Lake Ray Hubbard Transit Center, located on Duck Creek Drive west of Broadway (Belt Line Road) in Garland.

DART buses are operating normally given local road conditions. The TRE continues to operate its regular weekday schedule.

Customers can receive updates via DART.org and on Twitter @dartalerts.

We appreciate your continued patience as we work to restore all rail service.

Bus shuttles will serve the other stations not reached by DART Rail. Each shuttle will serve the stations listed. At each station board at the red Rail Disruption Shuttle Stop sign. These buses should display the destination on their header signs.
