Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Note for those attending an event or dining/drinking at the Music Factory: I have it on good authority that if you want an Uber/Lyft ride, you have to walk all the way around to the 114 service road side. Security is not allowing pickups by the restaurants/bars at all. I can see this working for ev...

Re: Dallas Area Rapid Transit

This is a great question as different stations offer passengers different amenities. As mentioned earlier, stations with the sort of configuration in the photo are rail stations with transit centers literally built into the framework of the station. They feature restrooms, vending machines, and a st...

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Any word on if or how the Las Colinas APT people mover will reach the new Music Factory development? I've seen everything from plans to extend the guideway to the median of Las Colinas Boulevard with an adjacent station, to a stop (awkwardly placed) just behind the main stage, to no access at all.

Re: DART: Expansion

I suppose they will look at several alignments, and estimate the projected costs for each. Then a final alignment will be chosen with at least a projected price attached. Eventually, they will choose the alignment that gives the most bang for the buck - not necessarily the cheapest to build. Exactl...

Re: DART: Expansion

I wonder if they'll revisit the alternatives they've researched that are already mostly underground, mainly B4 under Commerce and C3A under Union and City Hall.

Re: Dallas Area Rapid Transit

I never thought of that, but that would certainly be a shame to see the current plan affected. I really, really hope the subway doesn't get nixed somehow. I'd honestly be surprised if it isn't affected, I think that was even one of DART's stated reasons for pushing for a D2 alignment approval so qu...

Re: DART: Expansion

I keep hearing one of biggest reasons the Cotton Belt line is so gosh darn important to build is to keep Addison in DART who has been paying into the system since 1983 and because they're the only member city that still doesn't have rail service and that they 'just deserve it already.' Well guess wh...
