Dallas Area Rapid Transit is holding two virtual meetings for the public to learn about its long-term mobility plans.

The Draft 2045 Transit System Plan addresses regional growth as well as new mobility trends, according to DART. The plan will create a more accessible, sustainable and reliable system, per the transit agency.

The meetings will be streamed Oct. 27 from noon-1 p.m. and Oct. 28 from 6:30-7:30 p.m., according to an Oct. 19 news release from DART. One of the meetings will be recorded and posted to DART’s website. The virtual meeting link can be found here.

Nearly 4 million new residents and approximately 2.2 million jobs will be added to the North Texas region by 2045, according to DART. New technology and innovation are expected to shift the mobility landscape, the transit agency said.

One of DART’s latest projects in response to regional growth is the 26-mile Silver Line, which is set to debut in 2024. The east-west line will run from DFW Airport to Plano and have 10 stations, including two in Richardson and two in Plano.


A feedback form for the plan is available on DART’s website until Nov. 15. Feedback can also be mailed to the address below.
