Each month, we will spotlight a city in the DART Service Area and the service that DART provides.

DART opened the Addison Transit Center in June 1999 as a replacement for park-and-ride lots at Prestonwood Mall and the Loos Field House.

Today, the Addison Transit Center is one of the busiest bus hubs in the DART System. In addition to hosting 12 bus routes, the center is also a destination for the Central Richardson and Keller Springs GoLink zones.

In Q2 FY 2024, Addison Transit Center had:

  • 12 bus routes: 22, 200, 202, 227, 229, 235, 236, 237, 238, 239, 240, 305.
  • 136,968 boardings for the 12 bus routes combined.
  • Over 1,200 boardings for the Central Richardson GoLink.

The Addison Transit Center will become Addison Station with the opening of the Silver Line Regional Rail, which is expected to open late 2025 to mid-2026.

The Addison City Council selected partners to create a three-phase mixed-use development adjacent to the Silver Line station, with an estimated investment of $472 million. Plans for the 18-acre development include a mix of residential, corporate offices, boutique hotels, a grocery store, restaurants, and retail. The new development will be connected to a broader, 300-acre walkable urban district. This unique development will attract jobs, corporations, restaurants, shops, and new residents to Addison.

The project is the culmination of Addison’s years of preparation to expand the urban neighborhood and amenities of Addison Circle and Addison Circle Park through strategic acquisition of land around the DART station and planning efforts such as the Addison 2020 Vision Study and the Addison Circle Special Area Study, adopted in 2018.

Gary Slagel represents the Town of Addison on the DART Board of Directors.
