The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) board approved interlocal agreements with several cities for the operation of a five-year Transit Signal Priority (TSP) pilot program for buses.

The $2.9 million program for the cities of Dallas, Garland, Farmers Branch, Addison, Carrollton, Richardson, and Plano will reduce or eliminate unnecessary stops at signalized intersections starting in 2020.

TSP technology favors buses by allowing a green light extension or an early green light along rapid bus corridors, corridors with traffic congestion, and corridors with efficiency issues.

Benefits of TSP include reduced traffic signal delays, elimination of additional buses to address schedule issues, and improved on-time performance that will allow DART to provide consistent and reliable service.
