The addition of new buses to their existing fleet will help make it easier for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) to make planned service changes later this summer.

DART plans to focus New Flyer buses on peak schedule adjustments by straightening out, simplifying, and improving access on several routes in and around Dallas beginning August 12.

The 41 new CNG-fueled buses are each 40-feet long. To date, 13 New Flyer XN-40 buses have been delivered from St. Cloud, Minnesota, with an additional three arriving weekly.

New bus features that commuters will appreciate are the USB ports located at 33 of the seats that will allow them to charge their electronic devices while riding, larger interior InfoTransit monitors, vinyl upholstery on the seats, and flush-mounted tinted windows.

Besides a cleaner, smoother, quieter ride and sleeker appearance, DART operators will have a barrier door shield and a sliding window, automatic passenger counters, and a new on-board battery management system.
