DALLAS (AP) - Some Dallas Area Rapid Transit fares will increase as light rail service reaches Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The changes approved Tuesday by board members take effect Dec. 3 as DART extends the Orange Line from Las Colinas to airport property. A Blue Line extension will link Garland and Rowlett.

DART officials on Wednesday said the changes should make it easier and cheaper to transfer from buses to trains. Some fares decline under the new system, which consolidates three current fare classes into just local and regional fares.

A two-hour pass costing $2.50 will replace the current $1.75 single-ride ticket. The new pass covers any DART bus or train ride, plus the Trinity Railway Express between Union and CentrePort/DFW airport stations.

DART serves Dallas and a dozen nearby cities.
