Residents will soon be able to weigh in on upcoming changes to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit service. The public transit entity will host a public hearing on upcoming changes next month.

DART has undergone several changes throughout 2023, including its expansion of services for events and free rides for the most recent election held on November 7. More recently, DART announced the schedule for its holiday vehicles — two trains and three buses adorned with festive decorations and twinkling lights — that will be making their rounds through January 1, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

DART announced that it would hold a public hearing on December 12 to discuss changes to services affecting Plano, Richardson, Addison, Dallas, Garland, and Irving. These potential changes would go into effect next year.

Changes to be discussed include a new service from Arapaho Station to the University of Texas at Dallas, discontinued use of the Central Richardson GoLink location, increased service frequency to Arlington Park, and other changes to streets and GoLink, according to a DART Service Planning presentation.

If approved, service changes would be rolled out in January, June, and September of next year. January would see changes to GoLink zones and Route 216; June would see the addition of a new GoLink zone and realignments for Routes 231, 138, and 250; and September would see changes to rail schedules, “frequency improvements” to Route 22, realignment for Route 207, and more.

The public hearing will be held at the DART Board Room at 1401 Pacific Ave. (Akard Station) in Dallas at 6 p.m. on December 12. The public may submit comments and questions about the proposed changes to [email protected].
