Please keep this information handy during the winter season, as it contains important information regarding your daily commute.
These are the three possible scenarios for DART’s winter weather operations:
1. Partial Rail Shutdown – DART operates limited rail service, roughly within the LBJ loop.

3. Full Rail Shutdown, Service on Select Bus Routes – DART will operate a Sunday schedule on the highest-volume bus routes in the system.
