DART recently redesigned its entire bus network to increase frequency, reduce travel time, improve service, and create better access. Complemented by expanded GoLink service, the new bus network now puts 74% of residents in the DART Service Area within a half-mile of DART service. All Local routes have at least 19 hours of service, seven days a week. The agency continues to make improvements to bus service, passenger facilities, rider communications, and staff training with a focus on the riderís experience.


The 93-mile light rail system consists of four lines:

  • Red - Parker Road to Westmoreland (north-southwest);
  • Blue - Downtown Rowlett to UNT Dallas (northeast-south);
  • Green - North Carrollton/Frankford to Buckner (northwest-southeast); connects with DCTA A-train to Denton at Trinity Mills Station;
  • Orange - DFW Airport to Parker Road or LBJ/Central (northwest-north); connects with TEXRail to downtown Fort Worth at DFW Airport Station.
All lines serve downtown Dallas.
