New DART Buses Yield Savings and Environmental Benefits

DART’s new fleet of smoother-riding, cleaner-running buses is replacing their mix of diesel and liquefied natural gas buses at a rate of five per week, with full implementation planned by 2015. The 459 buses are running exclusively on compressed natural gas, which will cut the agency’s annual fuel costs by nearly two-thirds and significantly limit harmful emissions.

The new, 40-foot buses have a new low floor design for easier entry, larger windows for increased visibility, a wider aisle that allows greater flexibility with wheelchairs and mobility devices, interior cameras for safety and LED interior monitors in the front and rear for displaying visual images, including next stop, rider alerts, passenger information and stop requests.
