Building a New Plano Transit Station
Construction on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) 12th Street Station, in Plano, has begun. It will provide easy transfer opportunities between the Red and Orange lines and the future DART Silver Line, providing greater access to the rest of the light rail network. The stations will include 313 parking places, five DART bus bays, and easy access to the future Cotton Belt Regional Trail.
The 26-mile DART Silver Line project, operating on the historic Cotton Belt Corridor, extends between DFW Airport and Shiloh Road, in Plano, to provide passenger rail connections and service that will improve mobility, accessibility and system linkages to major employment, population and activity centers in the northern part of the DART service area.
The Silver Line will connect with the Trinity Metro TEXRail commuter rail line at DFW North station, providing access to downtown Fort Worth and other Tarrant County locales. The Silver Line will also provide access to the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) A-train commuter rail line connecting to Denton County locations, DART's Green Line, connecting to Dallas Love Field and Downtown Dallas via Downtown Carrollton Station, and DART's Red and Orange Lines at CityLine/Bush Station.
