DART light rail vehicles will be replaced by shuttle buses between two stations for few days in late June.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will operate shuttle buses instead of light rail vehicles between two stations in late June.

The service impacted is between SMU/Mockingbird Station and Walnut Hill Station, and the change will be in effect Thursday, June 23 through the end of service on Sunday, June 26. Regularly scheduled light rail service will resume on Monday, June 27.

During this time, DART will conduct concrete repairs on the elevated station at Park Lane Station and replace a section of rail north of SMU/Mockingbird Station.

Shuttle buses will be operated by a third-party charter bus company and will not be DART branded. Passengers should look for charter buses at the red “Rail Disruption” bus stop signs located near each station to board a shuttle bus. Shuttle buses will provide service to each affected station.
