Public invited to attend meetings on transit

DART meets with community about transit alternatives for Northwest Corridor

DART continues its study of the need for rail service, High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and other transit improvements in the Northwest Corridor with a series of public meetings, August 20-26.

Anticipating worsening traffic congestion in northwest Dallas, Farmers Branch, Carrollton and Irving, DART and the North Central Texas Council of Governments launched a Major Investment Study (MIS) in March to determine the best solutions. The 18-month-long study, which includes a series public meetings, is a prerequisite for federal funding support for transit development projects.

The public meetings will be presented in an open-house format with displays of various transit alternatives such as light rail, commuter rail and monorail technology. HOV lanes for I-35E and Highway 114, more bus service and other elements of an improved transportation system will also be presented. Officials will be available to answer questions.

Here are the locations of the meetings:

IRVING - Thursday, Aug. 20, 7-9 p.m.
