DART to Hold Meetings on Planned June Route Changes
A pre-public hearing community meeting and public hearing have been scheduled by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) to receive public comments on bus service enhancements proposed for implementation in June.
Planned changes represent another step in the creation of a new bus network for DART which has been working to get customers to their destination quicker and easier with more direct routes.
A Pre-Public Hearing Community Meeting will be noon, Mon., Feb. 24, DART Headquarters Board Room (Akard Station), 1401 Pacific Ave., Dallas, TX 75202. The Public Hearing will be the following day Tues., Feb. 25, 6:30 p.m., also at DART Headquarters.
Discussions will include the conversion of all five existing Flex routes - 840, 841, 843, 870 and 887 - to local service; extension of Route 52 to Dallas Convention Center Station, permitting the use of electric buses; and making current experimental Route 706 (Parkland Satellite Shuttle) a permanent part of the system.
