DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Riders will soon have two new stops on the Dallas Streetcar – locations on Zang Boulevard at 6th Street and between Davis and 7th Street in the Bishop Arts District.
As it stands passengers have to get off at end of the line at Beckley and that will continue for two weeks. For now, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is just testing the cars and training operators.
When the service begins the first trip will leave at 9:30 a.m. and run every 20 minutes until 11:30 p.m. – seven days a week.
Passenger Charles Gaby said he’s excited that here will soon be an easier way to get around Dallas. “It’ll be great,” he said. “It’ll be great for us, because we’re pretty close to the streetcar, we can go back and forth to downtown on it.”
All of the streetcar operators are will be certified for the two new stops by the end of the week. The new, extended route will officially launch on August 29.
