On April 13, Dallas Area Rapid Transit will launch its much-anticipated street-car service from downtown Dallas’ Union Station to Methodist Dallas Medical Center in North Oak Cliff.
The approximately $50 million project is the first phase of a plan to eventually link the Bishop Arts District to Uptown. And that larger plan is part of an even bigger vision that DART has for increasing transit options in downtown Dallas. The transit agency wants to increase the number of cars each train pulls through downtown and add a second light-rail line in the city’s center.
There’s no word yet on when the second phase of the streetcar project will reach Bishop Arts, but it’s likely to be late this year or early next year, according to Dallas Morning News transportation blogger Brandy Formby.
