Attention, DART Riders, That Proposed Fare Hike is Rapidly Approaching ...
Come September 14 (and certainly year's end), Dallas Area Rapid Transit is looking to up the price of everything, from a local single ride fare (from $1.50 to $2) to a premium weekly pass ($25 to $35) to a two-zone commuter rail annual pass ($800 to $1,050) and so forth. DART's also looking to add some stops and cut some days, and the board of directors will vote on the increases and alterations in a mere two months -- but not before holding 11 community open house on the issue, the schedule for which was released yesterday. Also scheduled: a public hearing April 14 at DART HQ in the boardroom, start time 6:30 p.m. Ride your bikes.
