Increase bus service across the City by adding new routes, shortening headways, and overall increasing service reliability and customer experience.
DART will prioritize investment in the bus system. The investments will include expanding service area coverage with additional bus routes, but also decreasing the headways, increasing frequencies, and increasing reliability and on-time performance. DART will also update their app to improve live-tracking of their bus fleet so that riders have accurate, on the fly schedule information for the next bus arrival. These investments into the bus service will be focused the most vulnerable and transit dependent neighborhoods. Special emphasis should be placed on improving the transit system’s ability to connect people to major employment centers, such as the inland port and medical district.
