DART Operating Scenario 2

For the safety of both our passengers and employees during the severe winter weather expected across North Texas, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is implementing Operating Scenario 2 of their Severe Winter Weather Operating Plans. DART rail operations will be suspended from Thursday, February 3 through Sunday afternoon on February 6. DART bus routes will operate on a Sunday schedule. Due to the expected poor conditions, DART recommends passengers avoid travel wherever possible. Riders can stay informed about service changes by registering for DART Alerts at www.dart.org.

DART will operate 14 shuttle bus routes between rail stations. The Operating Scenario 2 shuttle bus routes are available on the DART website at www.dart.org/winterweather. Shuttle bus service will be available every 45 minutes. For riders who need service to stations in the Central Business District (CBD), Route 960 is a Downtown Circulator serving West End, Akard, St. Paul and Pearl/Arts District stations. Passengers should look for the red “Rail Disruption” bus stop signs located near each station to board a shuttle bus.
