Irving Convention Center Station

In Dallas, Texas, Dallas Area Rapid Transit's long-anticipated Orange Line to Irving opened on July 30.

The opening of the first phase of the Orange Line, a 5.4-mile section from Bachman Station to Irving Convention Center Station, provides easy access to arts, education, entertainment and businesses while adding three new stations to the DART rail system: University of Dallas, Las Colinas Urban Center and Irving Convention Center.

Also, a trio of original DART Rail and Trinity Railway Express stations will be sporting new names starting July 30, to better reflect identities created by their evolving neighborhoods or surrounding developments. Pearl Station officially will become Pearl/Arts District Station; Cityplace Station will change to Cityplace/Uptown Station and South Irving Station will be the Downtown Irving/Heritage Crossing Station.
