DART: Beyond the Commute

This article appeared in a 2015 issue of the student newsletter.

DART is far more than your transportation to and from class. It is your trusted guide to discovering all that North Texas has to offer. 

From off-the-beaten-path venues to the trendiest spots in town, every trip on DART can be an adventure. Discover a hip restaurant that serves the best burger in town, or a quaint shop where the owners learn your name. Many of these "DARTable" places are an easy walk from a DART rail station or bus stop.

Fan of the arts? Some of the area's finest theaters are accessible by DART. Grab a friend and visit the Granville Arts Center (Blue Line to Downtown Garland Station), the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts (Red Line to Galatyn Park Station in Richardson), or any of the venues and museums in the Dallas Arts District (St. Paul and Pearl/Arts District stations). 

If shopping is more your speed, then catch the Red, Blue or Orange line to Mockingbird Station, where you will find everything from big names to boutiques. There also are plenty of restaurants within walking distance from the station, and the Angelika Film Center is there as well. 

Looking for some live music? A growing line-up of clubs and bars are a short walk from DART's Deep Ellum Station. Victory Station is right outside the American Airlines Center and the House of Blues isn't far from West End Station.
