Dallas Area Rapid Transit
“I got on and I couldn’t get off.” “They didn’t give us no choice!” Those are some of the excuses Dallas County Sheriff Deputies are hearing from drivers traveling solo in the high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes along Interstate-30 in Dallas.
As a line of dignitaries stood in front of a colorful bus, with a ribbon and scissors in hand, spectators counted down to the ribbon cutting and to Arlington losing a title it did not want. The Metro ArlingtonXpress (MAX) is up and running.
It’s a “birth” resulting from the “marriage” of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), and it means the first ever mass transportation service for the City of Arlington.
Arlington could get its first taste of mass transit later this year. DART voted to move ahead with plans for a commuter bus line, running between the University of Texas at Arlington and th TRE CentrePort Station.
DART could start a new shuttle bus service in downtown this summer. On Monday the Transportation and Environment Council Committee was briefed on the $1.2 million Downtown Dallas Shuttle Project.
DART drivers were sent a warning late Wednesday after one of its bus operators was caught apparently reading a book while driving.
Mayor Robert Cluck says Arlington has reached a deal with DART and Fort Worth’s transportation authority to operate buses in Arlington.
