New, improved East Dallas, Pleasant Grove bus service on the way

On June 7, DART is bringing new and improved service to customers throughout the service area, including our riders in East Dallas and Pleasant Grove.

The new Route 475 will operate Monday through Saturday between Interstate 30 and a previously unserved portion of State Highway 175 (C.F. Hawn Freeway) between Buckner and St. Augustine, with service primarily over Jim Miller Road. Transfer connections will be available to and from routes 11, 29, 42, 50, 161 and 466.

Points of interest along the route include Kmart, Wal-Mart and Sam's in the I-30 area, along with John Ireland, Frederick Douglass and W. A. Blair elementary schools, E. B. Comstock and John B. Hood middle schools and H. Grady Spruce High School.

Expansion Of Accessible Bus Service

With the steady arrival of new, lift-equipped buses, DART continues to expand its wheelchair-accessible bus fleet to serve a number of routes which were previously non-accessible. Lift-equipped buses will now be available on weekdays at a minimum of 60-minute intervals, but in most cases more frequently, on the following routes:

11, 24, 29, 35, 39, 46, 63, 76

More accessible service will be available on weekends too, with the following routes totally accessible.
