With dangerously cold weather currently forecast by the National Weather Service (NWS) through Wednesday, Feb. 1, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is making preparations to make sure our passengers and employees stay safe.
DART's Operations teams are in place across the region to ensure regular service is not impacted by the expected weather. In preparation for possible 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 and to provide assistance with travel planning, the indoor lobbies at the following DART transit centers and stations will be available from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
These additional DART transit centers and stations will be available from 6 a.m.–5 p.m.
Extended exposure to cold weather can be dangerous. 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 area.
