Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major Dallas-Fort Worth players at one of our upcoming events!

In preparation for the new expanded service, cars will be running every 20 minutes, seven days a week, between Union Station and Beckley. The first trip leaves Union Station at 9:30 a.m., arriving at Beckley at 9:36; the initial morning trip departs Beckley at 9:53 a.m. and reaches Union Station at 10 a.m. The final evening trip times remain unchanged, 11:30 p.m. outbound from Union Station and 11:53 p.m. inbound from Beckley.

Amidst talk of traffic and parking woes, DART is expanding service in South Dallas. DART officially debuts extended streetcar service to the Bishop Arts District on Aug. 29, but current customers can ride the line on its new schedule starting Monday, Aug. 15. The City of Dallas owns the streetcar, but DART will operate and maintain it. 

Cars will run every 20 minutes 9:30am to midnight seven days a week between Union Station and Beckley. The route runs about 2.5 miles and covers six stops. 

The dual-mode operation has both overhead contact system and off-wire electrical, meaning the car runs on battery rather than electrical wires to travel over the Houston Street Viaduct. The car has a seating capacity of 34 plus standing room.

Passenger service to two new stops—6th Street and Bishop Arts—will begin with a preview run during regular service hours on Aug. 27. The extended route officially launches Aug. 29, when new Route 723 Bishop Arts Service begins operation over Davis, Polk, Jefferson and Zang. This route will be a longer part of D-Link and charge DART Local fare
