DART Approves New Bus Purchase for UTD Campus Area
The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Board of Directors approved the purchase of three new 40-foot buses for use on Route 883, The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) campus area shuttle.
At the start, the UTD shuttle quickly became a lifeline for the many international, out-of-state and other students who don't have vehicles, and for faculty, staff and students looking to reduce commuting costs.
The service grew the following year from six to nine buses due to increased ridership demands as enrollment on the campus reached a new high.
