DART train celebrates NBA champion Mavs
One of Dallas Area Rapid Transit's (DART) distinctive yellow light rail trains got a special wrapping just in time for Christmas. The train made its debut prior to the Mavs game with the Miami Heat on December 25.
This is the first time DART has wrapped one of its light rail vehicles with advertising. DART's buses have long had exterior ads of various sizes, including complete vehicle wraps. In July DART's Board of Directors changed the agency's advertising policy to permit wrapped trains.
The special train stayed at Victory Station near the boarding platform throughout the game on Decmeber 25. It is now in regular revenue service with other DART Rail cars.
