Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is doing some replacement work along Pacific Avenue and Bryan Street that will shut down the trains going through downtown starting Saturday, October 25.

Rail service will be discontinued for six weekends, through Sunday, November 30. The rail segments involved include the following:

  • Red and Blue Lines between Union Station and Pearl/Arts District Station
  • Green Line between Victory and Deep Ellum stations
  • Orange Line between Victory and LBJ/Central stations

Only the Red Line will operate on the Pearl/Arts District-LBJ/Central portion of the Orange Line on these days.

DART shuttle buses will be in place to serve the affected downtown stations at red "Rail Disruption" bus stops. Five temporary routes will be in operation, including express service between Pearl/Arts District and Union Station.

Passengers traveling on these six weekends, including Thursday to Sunday during the four-day Thanksgiving holiday weekend, are strongly encouraged to allow extra time, especially if rail-to-bus transfers are involved.

Fans attending weekend events at American Airlines Center, as well as participants in the Capital One Bank Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day, may also be impacted by delays. Normal weekend service is scheduled to resume in time for the annual Children's Medical Center Holiday Parade.
