DART adds new bus routes, restructures others
Growing neighborhoods need their DART fix.
DALLAS On Monday, February 5, DART will adjust more than 30 bus routes and a number of schedules to provide better service and connections to new developments throughout the area.
In south Oak Cliff, Route 415 will service the new University of North Texas at Dallas campus. This route travels along Houston School Road on weekdays and Saturdays. On Sundays, service to Southwest Center Mall and Ledbetter Station will also be available via Route 415.
In southeast Dallas, DART is adding new service via bus Route 342 to the emerging residential community of Rylie-Kleberg, just southeast of Pleasant Grove. Route 342 will originate at the Lake June Transit Center and replace the Teagarden extension on Route 42.
In downtown Dallas, Route 21 will be restructured to accommodate One Arts Plaza at Routh Street, as well as Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (Arts Magnet), Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, and the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre currently under construction.
In Addison, Route 347 will now provide Saturday service in Addison, Dallas, and Plano, while Route 341 will provide more Sunday service to communities and shopping destinations such as the Wal-Mart at Frankford and Marsh Lane. Several routes in Farmers Branch and Carrollton will be adjusted to make better transfers to other bus routes and connections to DART's On-Call service at the Farmers Branch Park & Ride location.
In northwest Dallas, DART is offering an express service to the Medical Center area. Route 185 serving Harry Hines Boulevard, with connections to Parkland Hospital, UT Southwestern Medical Center, and the entire Medical Center area, will now make fewer stops. Customers can pick up this service via additional boarding locations in downtown Dallas from the CBD West Transfer Center. Look for bright-red, specially marked bus stop signs designating Route 185 boarding locations.
