Yes! On Monday, Dec. 12, DART returned nine major bus routes to regular operating service frequency.
In June, to provide service dependability for riders, DART implemented a five-minute service frequency reduction on 31 bus routes due to the nationwide shortage of bus operators. Thanks to an aggressive hiring initiative by the agency, DART is returning nine bus routes to regular service ahead of schedule.
Bus Route Frequency Adjustments
15-minute peak and 20-minute midday service will resume on the following routes:
DART Bus Route 13 Ervay
DART Bus Route 15 Buckner
DART Bus Route 16 Ferguson
DART Bus Route 17 Skillman
DART Bus Route 18 Samuell
DART Bus Route 20 Northwest Highway
DART Bus Route 22 Forest Lane
DART Bus Route 38 Ledbetter
DART Bus Route 57 Westmoreland
DART plans to return the remaining 22 bus routes to regular service frequency on January 23, 2023.
Bus Bay Changes
To improve schedule efficiency and provide more direct service, DART Bus Route 13 will serve Hatcher Station in both directions from stops on Elsie Faye Heggins Street. Route 13 will no longer use the triangular routing over Lagow and Robert L. Parish streets to enter the station on Scyene Road.
