New DART Rail, bus, streetcar and TRE schedules begin Oct. 24

DART Rail expands to 93 miles with the opening of the Blue Line to the Camp Wisdom and UNT Dallas stations on Oct. 24. The opening brings the country’s longest light rail system and its 64 stations to nearly 3,000 students attending the only regionally accredited, public university in Dallas.

Route 415 will operate between Southwest Center Mall and the UNT Dallas campus. The seven day a week route will feature a weekday-only diversion to the Texas Department of Public Safety Super Center near the intersection of Interstates 20 and 35E.

New Route 516 will offer seven-day service to the Singing Hills community from Camp Wisdom Station while existing Route 553 will become two separate routes. The northern portion, between Pall Mall and Morgan, will keep the number 553 and become a one-way clockwise loop operating Monday through Friday. The remaining portion between Camp Wisdom Station and Cedar Valley College will operate weekdays as new Route 555.

In response to requests for earlier service, the Dallas Streetcar will expand its hours of operation on Oct. 24. The first trip will leave Union Station at 5:30 a.m. Service frequency will remain every 20 minutes until midnight, seven days a week.

To address customer concerns regarding irregular train headways during peak hours, the TRE will debut sweeping schedule changes. Details are available at
