Posted on Jan 12, 2024 by DART News Release

With exceptionally cold weather currently forecast by the National Weather Service (NWS), Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is preparing to ensure our passengers and employees stay safe.

DART Operations teams are in place across the region to ensure regular service is not impacted by the expected weather. In preparation for any ice accumulation, bus and train station parking lots and walkways will be treated, and DART vehicles and train switches are being weatherized.

To ensure DART riders stay warm while transferring, and to aid with travel planning, the following DART transit centers will be available from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.

  • J.B. Jackson Jr. Transit Center/MLK Jr. Station (1412 S. Trunk Ave., Dallas 75210)
  • CBD West Transfer Center (920 San Jacinto Street, Dallas 75202)
  • Downtown Irving/Heritage Crossing Station (201 Rock Island Rd., Irving 75060)
  • South Garland Transit Center (4051 Leon Road, Garland 75041)

All other DART transit centers and stations will be available from 5 a.m. – 9 p.m.

Extended exposure to cold weather can be dangerous, if possible, dress in layers to stay warm, wear a hat, cover exposed skin, and watch for signs of frostbite and hypothermia. Signs of hypothermia include confusion, shivering, difficulty speaking, and sleepiness. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact 911 immediately.

DART will continue to monitor the weather conditions across the North Texas region. To stay informed about changes to service, please sign up for DART Service Alerts at DART.org/email. You can also find service updates on the DART GoPass app. Information will also be available on our website at DART.org/winterweather, and through our social media channels.
