Now Arriving: CHANGE

Carrollton, Farmers Branch and Pleasant Grove
welcome the arrival of the Green Line.

William Velasco, II, DART Chairman of the Board

The 28-mile Green Line is our biggest project yet and the longest light rail project North America has seen in recent years.

Sounds impressive, doesn't it? But this new line really is part of something even bigger. It's the centerpiece of the largest systemwide service change in DART's history one that will forever transform our transit system.

Change is never easy, and this is a huge undertaking. But our service change is geared to make it easier and faster for thousands of commuters to travel to popular work, shopping, medical, education and entertainment destinations.

The Green Line itself is a testament to the great things cities can accomplish when they pull together. In fact, our united front together with the tireless efforts of Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and Representatives Eddie Bernice Johnson and Pete Sessions helped DART win an impressive $700-million grant for the heart of this project.

As the DART System grows, the communities we serve grow and change in positive ways. The yellow and white trains moving up and down this new corridor are vehicles to a better tomorrow the means to greater mobility, exciting economic development, cleaner air, and reduced traffic congestion and a stronger, more vibrant metropolis.

The DART System isn't just moving people; it's powering change for the challenging years ahead. Come see how great this change will be.
