DART announces shuttle agreements

Oct. 14, 2019
The agency extends its agreement with TI and approves its agreement with Richardson.

The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has agreed to extend site-specific shuttles connecting the Texas Instruments (TI) campus to the LBJ Central Station and has approved a three-year agreement with the city of Richardson for the Galatyn Park Station shuttle.  

The TI shuttle was originally approved in 2014 and will serve approximately 12,100 TI employees in the campus area for five more years. Routes 826, 827 and 828 will continue to provide employees and the general public short last-mile connections from LBJ Central Station while circulating the TI campus, and serving the surrounding industrial park areas from 5:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

The Galatyn Park Station shuttle will provide a last-mile connection between the DART Galatyn Park Station to the Crescent Palisades Employment District and serve the surrounding industrial park areas, corporate officers, entertainment and residential housing from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  

The Galatyn Park Station shuttle service currently supports 118 weekday riders, but DART says the area is going through accelerated development that includes mixed business, entertainment and residential developments.  

Originally created by a private business, the Galatyn Park Station shuttle was eventually taken over by the city of Richardson. DART has been a funding partner with Richardson since 2008.
