400,000 daily trips on buses, trains and HOV lanes

Another ridership record for DART

Each weekday DART is delivering more than 400,000 passenger trips on its growing network of buses, trains and high occupancy (HOV) lanes, setting records in average weekday ridership on DART Rail and combined fixed route (bus, rail and Trinity Railway Express) services.

Average weekday ridership was up in all fixed route modes and HOV. To put the August 2008 ridership data into perspective, the 407,000 weekday trips are more than the combined populations of the DART Member Cities of Garland, Richardson, Rowlett and Addison.

Average weekday ridership for August

DART Rail: 73,058 (up 17.6% over August 2007)

Trinity Railway Express: 11,092 (up 19.5% over August 2007)

DART Bus: 157,963 (up 3.2% over August 2007)

HOV Lanes: 165,400 (up 38.3% over August 2007)
