DART to St. Patrick's Fun
With less than a month until Dallas' St. Patrick's Day events, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is already getting ready for the big parade and 5K when everyone is Irish.
Parade and festivalgoers, as well as runners participating in the Dash Down Greenville 5K, can safely travel to the 40th Dallas St. Patrick's Parade & Festival, Mar. 16, when DART adds service throughout that Saturday to meet demand.
From Plano, rail service will be added to Red and Orange Line trains operating between 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. to Mockingbird, Lovers Lane or Park Lane stations.
From Carrollton, Farmers Branch and Dallas customers can ride the Green Line and transfer to either the Orange or Red Line in downtown Dallas.
Passengers riding the TRE can transfer to the Orange or special event Red Line trains at Victory Station.
If you normally ride Route 502 or 583 at Lovers Lane Station, service will be interrupted until the Dash Down Greenville Run has been completed. Both routes will be detoured from Lovers Lane to serve Mockingbird Station until Greenville is re-opened to traffic. Route 502 will continue to serve Park Lane Station. Red and Orange Line trains to Lovers Lane Station will not be interrupted during the parade.
Additional routes will be temporarily detoured during the parade including 81, 82, 84, 428 and 521. See DART.org/rideralerts for more information.
