Dallas Area Rapid Transit's (DART) board yesterday approved a six-month pilot demonstration of the agency’s GoLink on-demand shuttle service for areas around South Dallas and Fair Park, Texas. 

As part of the pilot, the GoLink shuttle will provide short trips for DART riders within the neighborhoods near MLK Jr., Fair Pair and Hatcher stations. 

The pilot will cost $50,000 and include one accessible taxi that will supplemented by Uber Pool. Service will begin this summer.

A survey conducted with the South Dallas/Fair Park Transportation Initiative group found that extensive bus and rail service is available in the area, but travel within neighborhoods can be difficult, DART officials said in a press release.

GoLink is now available in Farmers Branch, Glenn Heights, Inland Port, Kleberg, Rylie, Lake Highlands, Lakewood, North Dallas, Park Cities, Legacy West, Far North Plano, North Central Plano/Chase Oaks and Rowlett.
