A few weeks ago, you may recall, I asked with Dallas Area Rapid Transit spokesman Morgan Lyons why DART wasn't expanding service for the NBA All-Star Weekend. Said Lyons at the time, there just wasn't the need. DART has since rethought that policy.
"We just looked at it some more, and as we got closer to the event and all the things going on, we decided it would be easy to extend the service, and we'll see how it's received," Lyons tells Unfair Park this afternoon. That's good news, I told him. "Glad to make you happy. I get up in the morning and think, 'How can I make the Friends of Unfair Park happy?'" Damn right.
Lyons says they're adding trains, upping frequency and extending some light-rail service till 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. You can get the full schedule for yourself on DART's Web site. Says Lyons, "We'll see how it works out."
