DART Public Meeting April 21 Will Discuss Bus Network Redesign

BY IRVING WEEKLY STAFF

Irving, Texas. April 21, 2021

The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will design a new bus network in 2021 to better serve the residents of North Texas, both now and into the future. DART says some bus routes have been running the same paths since World War II, and most of the network was designed in the 1980s.

In recent decades the urban area has grown enormously, and the places people go for work, shopping and other purposes have changed. The rail and bus network was originally designed around downtown Dallas, but more of the region’s activity happens far outside of that center today. While DART has made small changes over the years, a fresh look is needed.

To address today's needs, as well as those of the future, the agency is initiating a bus network redesign. This collaborative planning effort will decide where bus lines should go, when they should run and how frequent the service should be - starting from a clean slate. The DARTzoom: A New Bus Network project will examine the DART bus network in all 13 of the cities that collect sales taxes to fund DART services.

The next meeting will discuss Irving's bus routes, and all interested stakeholders are invited. All meetings are held virtually using Microsoft Teams:

6:30 P.M., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21
