In a February 4 release, DART says, "The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Hard Freeze Warning for all of Dallas/Fort Worth, reporting that temperatures will remain below freezing through Saturday morning. While road conditions across the region continue to remain extremely dangerous, DART recommends everyone avoid travel wherever possible."

They advise that passengers who need emergency service should contact the DART Customer Information Center at 214-979-1111.
