Founded in 1999, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) provides public transportation throughout the city of Dallas. Operating from approximately 5 a.m. through midnight, DART trains, buses, streetcars and trolleys offer an inexpensive way to get around without being forced to walk for miles to reach your destination.
The DART Rail has four lines that cover 93 miles, intersecting Dallas with stations at prominent intersections throughout the city. While the different train routes - Red Line, Blue Line, Green Line and Orange Line - begin and end in the outskirts of the city or extend into neighboring cities, they all travel through downtown Dallas giving riders multiple opportunities to hop on and ride.
Another benefit of the DART Rail is that it has stops at both the DFW International Airport and Dallas Love Field. So no matter which airport you fly into or out of, you can easily get to or from your flight.
The DART Bus runs extensively through Dallas and the surrounding cities with plenty of stops and connections. With 692 buses and 6,878 stops, the iconic yellow and white buses make it very convenient to travel to any location in the city.
Focused on providing transportation services to a more condensed area, the Dallas Streetcar provides a 2.45-mile route between EBJ Union Station and the historic Bishop Arts District, while the M-Line Trolley links the Dallas Arts District to trendy shops and eateries in Uptown.
