DART Severe Winter Weather Operating Plans

En Español

OPERATING PLANS FOR SEVERE WINTER WEATHER


DART has developed three contingency plans designed to maintain service to and from each of our transit facilities, should winter weather disrupt normal rail operations.

In the event either plan is necessary, notices will be placed on DART.org/rideralerts and sent to local media outlets 6-8 hours prior to start of service on the day of implementation. You may also sign up for My DART Updates (text and/or email) at DART.org/email or follow us on Twitter @DARTalerts.

Please keep this information handy during the winter season, as it contains important information regarding your daily commute.

Red Rail Disruption bus stop sign Note: During severe weather, the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) commuter rail may also experience delays. Learn more at trinityrailwayexpress.org.

SIGNAGE


During either weather contingency plan, shuttle buses will load and unload at red "Rail Disruption" bus stop sign located near each station.

PLANES OPERATIVOS PARA CLIMA INVERNAL SEVERO


DART ha desarrollado tres planes de emergencia diseñados para mantener el servicio desde y hacia cada una de nuestras instalaciones de tránsito en caso de que el clima de invierno entorpezca las operaciones ferroviarias normales.

En el caso de que cualquiera de los dos planes sea necesario, se publicarán avisos en DART.org/rideralerts y se enviarán a medios de comunicación locales entre 6 y 8 horas previas al inicio del servicio el día de la implementación. También puede registrarse en My DART Updates (mensaje de texto o correo electrónico) en DART.org/email o seguirnos en Twitter @DARTalerts.

Por favor tenga este folleto a la mano durante el invierno, ya que contiene información importante sobre su trayecto diario.
