The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) board agreed to implement a Master Streetcar Interlocal Agreement between DART and the City of Dallas that establishes Dallas Streetcar roles and responsibilities.

The agreement is needed to consolidate existing contracts and to outline responsibilities related to the planning, design, construction, procurement, operations, and maintenance of the Dallas Streetcar, now and in the future.

Project Specific Amendments would be presented to the DART board for approval related to scope, schedule, and funding sources for studies or projects that would become part of the streetcar system.

The agreement’s approval now goes to the Dallas City Council for approval later this summer.

The City’s responsibilities, as the streetcar owner, will include project scope, planning funding, grant management, design and construction funding, utility relocations, operations and maintenance, and streetcar vehicle funding.

DART would be the technical advisor/owner representative responsible for planning, environmental and preliminary design, final design, procurement construction, operations and maintenance, system safety, and fare collection.
