DART Approves New Bus Purchase for UTD Campus Area

The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Board of Directors approved the purchase of three new 40-foot buses for use on Route 883, The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) campus area shuttle.

The popular site-specific bus service between the UTD campus and surrounding neighborhoods in Dallas, Richardson and CityLine/Bush Station, as well as to nearby apartments and shopping destinations, is known as The Comet Cruiser and has been in operation since 2008.

At the start, the UTD shuttle quickly became a lifeline for the many international, out-of-state and other students who don't have vehicles, and for faculty, staff and students looking to reduce commuting costs.

The service grew the following year from six to nine buses due to increased ridership demands as enrollment on the campus reached a new high.
