|Cityplace/Uptown Inclinators, Mockingbird Elevator Down Time Scheduled:
Customers who depend on elevator service at Mockingbird Station or the inclinators at Cityplace/Uptown may need to adjust travel plans for the next few weeks, as the equipment will be down at various times for maintenance upgrades.
Beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday, August 29, until approximately 9 p.m. the next evening, the Mockingbird elevator will not be operable. Rail passengers unable to use the facility's escalators will have access to the station's upper level by getting off at Lovers Lane Station or White Rock Station and taking DART shuttle buses to Mockingbird. Those arriving at Mockingbird who wish to transfer to rail will be able to take the shuttle and board trains at either Lovers or White Rock.
At Cityplace/Uptown, the West Inclinator will be out of service from 9 a.m., on Tuesday, Sept. 2, through Friday, Sept. 5, while the East Inclinator will be running. From Saturday, Sept. 6, through Tuesday, Sept. 9, the reverse will take place. During this period, a shuttle bus will be in continuous operation between the building's east and west portals.
Our apologies for the temporary inconvenience. Thanks for riding DART.
