The latest carrot? D-Link, a complimentary shuttle from downtown to Oak Cliff that runs every 15 minutes between 11 am and 11:30 pm, Monday-Saturday. D-Link debuts Monday, November 4, and is a joint venture between DART, Downtown Dallas Inc. and the City of Dallas.
Downtown Dallas is already connected to the most expansive light rail system in the country, but people often complain that there's no direct route to Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff. D-Link provides that crucial route, along with stops at Victory Park, Sixth Floor Museum, Uptown, Main Street, Omni Dallas hotel and the convention center.
DART hopes D-Link will be an attractive amenity to Dallas' 30 million annual tourists and visitors; the 135,000 people working downtown; and more than 30,000 downtown, Uptown and Oak Cliff residents.
Monday through Friday, the route begins at Convention Center Station and takes about 30 minutes to reach Bishop Arts District. On Saturday, it starts at Cedars Station. The route map and all other details are available on DART's website.
