DART to open 2 airport lines

Posted on November 13, 2012

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will debut two new bus connections to DFW International Airport and Dallas Love Field in December, making airline travel in North Texas easier than ever.

Route 500 from the Belt Line Station on the Orange Line to Terminal A at DFW is a preview of the direct light rail connection customers will enjoy in December 2014. Route 524 from the Inwood/Love Field Station on the Green Line improves service to Love Field with more frequent bus trips.

Route 500 will serve DFW Airport, area hotels along Plaza Drive, and CentrePort Station. It operates seven days a week between the new Belt Line Station and DFW Terminal A with most trips also connecting to Trinity Railway Express (TRE) service at CentrePort/DFW Airport Station. Buses depart every 15 minutes during rush hours, 20 minutes mid-day and 30 minutes late evenings and meet every Orange Line train. Buses to CentrePort/DFW will be available Monday through Saturday when TRE trains are in operation.

The new route offers a benefit to those airline customers wishing to take advantage of DART's long term parking feature at Belt Line Station with its 596 parking spaces.

Meanwhile, the new Route 524 will begin connecting customers arriving on board either the Green or Orange Lines at Inwood/Love Field Station with access to Dallas Love Field Airport. Operating every 15 minutes during rush hours, 20 minutes mid-day and 30 minutes late evening, bus service will match Green Line train frequencies and provide direct service to the Love Field terminal.
