OPERATING PLANS FOR SEVERE WINTER WEATHER
DART has developed three contingency plans designed to maintain service to and from each of our transit facilities, should winter weather disrupt normal rail operations.
In the event either plan is necessary, notices will be placed on DART.org/rideralerts and sent to local media outlets 6-8 hours prior to start of service on the day of implementation. You may also sign up for My DART Updates (text and/or email) at DART.org/email or follow us on Twitter @DARTalerts.
