The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) yesterday announced it will restore 90 percent of pre-pandemic service levels beginning Oct. 19.

On April 6, DART temporarily reduced service on light-rail and bus services due to lower ridership levels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The upcoming service restoration will move light-rail service to a 20-minute frequency until 7 p.m. on weekdays, DART officials said in a press release.

The proposed modifications were approved by DART’s board after determining that the service levels are within the proposed fiscal-year 2021 budget and 20-year financial plan allocations.
