Starts August 29 for Oak Cliff, Downtown Dallas and Design District
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) customers should plan to obtain new timetables when the newest portion of the Dallas Streetcar opens Monday, Aug. 29. The extension, just under one mile, reaches the Bishop Arts District and has two stops: Zang Boulevard at 6th Street and between Davis and Seventh streets (Bishop Arts). Hours remain 9:30 a.m. to midnight, but frequency improves to every 20 minutes along the entire Dallas Streetcar service area of 2.4 miles and six stops.
With the streetcar extension, Route 722 (D-Link) becomes an expanded downtown-only service and no longer goes to Oak Cliff. The current southern loop over Davis and Jefferson is being replaced by New Route 723 Bishop Arts Service.
Route 49 will become new Route 749 (Stemmons/Design District Service) with its own distinctive bus stops. The re-branded route will provide a direct connection between Southwestern Medical District/Parkland Station, the Dallas Design District, Stemmons corridor hotels, Market Center and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, plus many other downtown Dallas attractions.
Bus schedule adjustments to routes 12, 27, 35, 208, 360, 362, 377, 400, 506, 513, 524, 534 and 583 are also effective Monday, August 29.
