Beginning June 13, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will implement temporary service frequency adjustments on 31 of its 97 bus routes due to the ongoing nationwide shortage of bus operators.
For more information about these changes, please visit DART.org/ServiceChange.
To restore service reliability and dependability for all of our riders, DART is implementing a five-minute temporary reduction in frequency on most routes currently operating every 15 minutes. Some routes with 20-minute midday and early evening service will change to 30-minute service. DART Light Rail service, as well as service on the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) and the Dallas Streetcar, will remain the same.
These temporary service frequency adjustments will ensure that passengers can rely on the DART service schedule, improving service and reducing bus stop wait times, while we continue to aggressively recruit new bus operators.
DART tentatively plans to return to regular frequency on all services on January 23, 2023, based on bus operator hiring goals. As hiring continues, DART will continue to re-evaluate the temporary service frequency adjustments and adjust as necessary.
