City Spotlight: Glenn Heights

Posted on Mar 27, 2024 by Leading Mobility newsletter

Glenn Heights is DART’s southernmost city in the DART Service Area and the only one that is not contiguous with the other cities. This seven-square-mile community, which straddles Dallas and Ellis counties, is business friendly and rapidly growing.

The city has been a member of DART since the agency’s inception in 1983. Transit has been instrumental in connecting the Glenn Heights’ workforce to regional employment centers.

DART began non-stop express bus service between the city and Downtown Dallas in September 1984, which continues to this day. Currently, Glenn Heights Express Route 306 provides weekday peak-only service to Downtown Dallas, Dallas Market Center, and the Southwestern Medical District. 




The Glenn Heights Park & Ride opened in September 1991 and, not surprisingly, is the agency’s most southern transit facility. The lot contains 595 parking spaces and an open-air passenger shelter. 





Glenn Heights is also served by a citywide GoLink zone, which was preceded by DART On-Call service. When UNT Dallas Station on the Blue Line opened in October 2016, the agency expanded its on-demand service to connect to the light rail station. From UNT Dallas Station, Glenn Heights residents can transfer to either the Inland Port GoLink or the Inland Port Connect GoLink zone to reach jobs in the Southern Dallas County Inland Port


In August 2023, DART – in collaboration with the North Central Texas Council of Governments – installed two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the Glenn Heights Park & Ride. DART’s selection of Glenn Heights sets the city ahead of the curve as they can already provide a convenient charging location for residents.

During Q1 FY 2024, DART service in Glenn Heights had:

  • 15,942 total boardings at the Glenn Heights Park & Ride, including bus, GoLink and Paratransit trips.
  • 2,186 boardings on the Glenn Heights GoLink zone.
  • 8,819 boardings on Express Route 306.
  • 251 times the EV chargers were used.

We thank Glenn Heights Mayor Sonja Brown, City Manager Cliff Blackwell, the Glenn Heights City Council Members, and the city’s residents for their support of DART for over 40 years.
