DART Increases Service Starting Oct. 19
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will be implementing major changes in bus, rail and GoLink service starting Monday, Oct. 19, as the North Texas economy slowly reopens.
The agency will restore service on a group of routes and improve frequencies on others to just under 90 percent of pre-pandemic levels.
Seven higher volume bus routes and light rail service will offer 20-minute frequency weekdays until 7 p.m., and 30-minute frequency thereafter; weekend service will remain unchanged.
A Western Carrollton GoLink service, which has been operating on a trial basis since May 11, will become permanent, and low ridership routes 27, 42, 155, 210, 211, 385, 585, 840 and 887 will be discontinued, modified or replaced.
Sixty-five routes with higher ridership and potential for social distancing concerns, plus the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) , will return to pre-pandemic service levels.
Forty-eight routes in the system will remain on their current modified schedules.
Additional details on the October service changes may be found at DART.org/ServiceChange or by calling (214) 979-1111.
