As we look back on DART's 40-year history, we celebrate both our early years and our more recent accomplishments.
The first segment of DART's long-anticipated Orange Line to Irving opened in July 2012, which added three new stations to the DART Rail System: University of Dallas, Las Colinas Urban Center, and Irving Convention Center. Later that year, that Dallas College North Lake Campus Station (formerly North Lake College Station) and Belt Line Station opened. The Orange Line reached its terminus in August 2014 with the opening of DFW Airport Station at Terminal A.
DART and the City of Irving opened a new station – Hidden Ridge Station at Carpenter Ranch – in April 2021. This infill station was built to serve Verizon Communications’ Hidden Ridge development, including Pioneer Natural Resources regional office. The 110-acre mixed-use project is planned to include apartments and residences, restaurants, retail space, a hotel, and a two-acre green space with amenities when it is complete.
