Orange Line DART Changes Everything
Aug 06, 2012 11:24AM
The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Orange Line to Irving has opened, bringing with it a new era of choices and changes to avoid duplication of services for passengers throughout the region.
The first phase of the Orange Line, a 5.4-mile section from Bachman Station to Irving Convention Center Station, provides easy access to arts, education, entertainment and businesses, while adding three new stations to the DART rail system: University of Dallas, Las Colinas Urban Center and Irving Convention Center.
Passengers traveling between Parker Road Station and downtown Dallas will see an extended period of more frequent service during weekday peak periods. Customers traveling to downtown Dallas from either LBJ/Central Station or Bachman Station will see more frequent service at all times.
Three stations have new names. Pearl Station is now Pearl/Arts District Station; Cityplace Station is Cityplace/Uptown Station; and South Irving Station is now the Downtown Irving/Heritage Crossing Station. Other route schedule changes and parking accommodations are extensive.
Details of the changes can be found in the service change brochures available on dart vehicles, inside transit centers and by calling 214-979-1111 or visiting dart.org.
