Light rail has grown in popularity, especially with higher gas prices. A Garland or Plano resident can now ride the train from either city to the popular West End dining and entertainment district.
Many sports fans prefer this to parking a car at the American Airlines Center. DART’s Green line, opened in Fall, 2009, runs between Victory Station through Deep Ellum to the MLK Station in Fair Park. Another portion, has opened in Carrollton and Farmers Branch.
Developers have begun developing around four train stops. A combination of townhomes, apartments, retail and office space provides an urban center around other train stops, creating destination points. DART has restored trolleys of transit days gone by.
These trolleys make their way along McKinney Avenue, serenading passengers with clanging bells, tooting whistles, and hissing air brakes. The historic M-Line, better known as the McKinney Avenue Trolley,extended service to Cityplace Station between Lemmon and Blackburn near downtown.
