DALLAS (CBSDFW) – A bus stop at the intersection of Forest and Audelia is now closed for good as part of a bigger mission to fight crime in the area.

Many residents said they often avoid that particular intersection because of the crime.

“People doing drugs, people selling drugs, it is an issue,’ said resident Joe Davis.

DART spokesman Mark Ball said that this stop was one of their busiest locations and while no crime was reported on DART buses they wanted to work with the community.

“We know they are attempting to fight the bigger issue of crime and we wanted to be part of the solution.’ Said Ball. He said they agreed to remove the bus stop and direct people to use bus stop to the north and the south.

“I’m glad they did it,’ said Davis.
