xploring some of Dallas’ hottest attractions and historic areas has never been more convenient, thanks to the complimentary D-Link shuttle service offered by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) in conjunction with the City of Dallas and Downtown Dallas Inc. Operating Monday through Saturday between 11 a.m. and 11:30 p.m., the D-Link shuttle (Route 722) transports riders on an 18-mile, 34-stop journey through popular districts of downtown Dallas and north Oak Cliff. The entire trip takes approximately 45 minutes, with seven buses operating every 15 minutes along the stops. While many of the D-Link stops also service regular DART buses, the D-Link’s flashy yellow-and-pink shell makes it easy to identify.   The route begins at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas and circulates through 10 of the city’s most popular areas, including downtown’s lower Uptown area,

the Dallas Arts District, West End Historic District, Main Street District, Reunion District, Civic Center District and Victory Park. Before 6 p.m., the route terminates at the convention center, but after 6 p.m., service continues on to the Cedars and Southside area, Dallas’ newest entertainment destination. Along the D-Link loop in downtown Dallas, riders may access several hotels and restaurants and many of the city’s most popular destinations, including Klyde Warren Park (a deck park that spans Woodall Rodgers Freeway), the Old Red Museum, Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Sixth Floor Museum and American Airlines Center. A short trip across the Trinity River on the Jefferson Street viaduct takes riders to Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts District, a bustling area filled with eclectic boutiques, galleries and bookshops and a variety of trendy eateries. The Oak Cliff route

also includes stops at the historic Kessler Theater, iconic Texas Theatre and Oak Cliff Cultural Center. Passengers at any stop may easily determine arrival time of the next bus by sending a text to 41411 with the word “dart” followed by a space and the Stop ID number, a 5-digit identification number displayed at each stop. Get around downtown and the Bishop Arts District with the help of the D-Link map on page 85. For more information, including additional routes and timetables, visit dart.org/dlink. — ILENE JACOBS
