High Coverage Concept
This Concept would use the same amount of bus funding as the existing network, no more
People and places that have transit service today would still have service. Some new people and places would also have some new service.
But spreading transit out to so many areas means that most routes could not offer a high frequency of every 15 or 20 minutes. As a result, most people would still have to wait a long time for the bus on most routes.
99.8% of current riders’ trips would still be close to a bus stop in this Concept. New service would also be added in a few new areas, or on a few streets that don’t have bus routes today.
This Concept would offer short walks to routes, like in the existing network.
Like in the existing network, service would be spread out to cover many areas. Routes would also run down many parallel streets. Spreading transit out means spreading it thin, so people would still have to wait a long time for most buses.
Limited night and weekend service
All of the areas that DART covers today would be covered, but there still wouldn’t be much night or weekend service.
