Streetcar

In December 2010, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) awarded a $23 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant to support a proposed transit project to provide streetcar service from downtown Dallas to Oak Cliff. This project is a collaborative endeavor between the City of Dallas, North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), and the FTA. Since the grant was awarded, these entities have further defined the proposed project to consist of an approximate 1.6-mile, single at-grade, dedicated streetcar track extending from near Union Station in downtown Dallas to the Colorado Boulevard and Beckley Avenue intersection in Oak Cliff. The streetcar track would be contained within existing roadway right-of-way along Houston Street, crossing the Trinity River via the Houston Street Viaduct, then transitioning to Zang Boulevard, and finally turning west on Colorado Boulevard before terminating at the Beckley Avenue Intersection.  Read more Link
