DALLAS — Experiencing difficulties culling together funding for passenger train service along the Cotton Belt line in Denton and Collin counties, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is considering bus rapid transit, reported The Dallas Morning News.

The portion of the Cotton Belt service DART will operate in Dallas, Denton and Collin counties is seen as key to connecting Fort Worth, the airport and cities along or between DART’s Green and Red lines.

The east-west connector would enhance DART’s current light-rail network, which is currently a hub-and-spoke system. That configuration leads to long trips for suburb-to-suburb passengers who are forced to go through downtown Dallas, according to the report. For the full story, click here.
