Our newest stop opens next Monday, April 12. Hidden Ridge Station at Carpenter Ranch will provide service to DFW Airport, downtown Dallas and great destinations across the DART Service Area. From employment centers and healthcare to airports and entertainment districts, this station will make North Texas even more connected.

Hidden Ridge Station makes your ride smooth, too, with plenty of parking, convenient bus connections, as well as kiss-and-ride spaces for hassle-free drop-off and pickup. It all adds up to a friendlier, more affordable commute!

The City of Irving and Verizon partnered to develop the 110-acre mixed-use project adjacent to the station, which includes plans for residential, restaurant and retail space. Archer Western Construction built the station, while Jacobs served as DART’s design consultant.

The station features the work of Marty Ray, a ceramic artist and Professor Emerita of Art. Ray retired from Dallas College North Lake Campus – formerly North Lake College – in 2017. Ray’s concept for the station draws on the land’s history, as the stop is located on Hackberry Creek Ranch – the former homestead of the Carpenter family that founded Las Colinas. Inspired by this, Ray highlighted the past life of this one-time horse and cattle ranch.

Earlier this afternoon, DART held a virtual grand opening event for stakeholders, community members and dignitaries to celebrate the station’s completion. With Hidden Ridge Station officially opening for service to the public on Monday, April 12, now it’s time to see the station for yourself!

Meanwhile, listen to what U.S. Representative Beth Van Duyne, who represents Texas’ 24th District, has to say about this exciting development and what it means for her district – watch this video!
