When will DART restore its service, and how do I sign up for updates?

DART is restoring 90% of pre-pandemic service levels beginning Oct. 19.

The DART Board of Directors approved the proposed modifications after determining that the service is within the proposed fiscal year 2021 budget and 20-year financial plan allocations.

The Board action comes after DART implemented temporary service adjustments for the bus and light rail system on April 6 that better reflected ridership demand at that time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Service restoration includes 65 bus routes being restored to pre-pandemic service levels. A total of seven core frequent bus routes, as well as all light rail train operation service, will move to 20-minute frequency until 7 p.m. on weekdays.
