"This extension goes to a part of our community that is in need of more transportation choices. Now a young person starting out in life can pursue a complete, high-quality college education without the burden of car ownership."
Reenergizing the South Oak Cliff Community
DART's Blue Line extension opens up new opportunities and destinations to Dallas' South Oak Cliff Community, a primarily low-income neighborhood. It makes the area more attractive to developers, and residents have improved access to the region for employment, education, housing, health care and entertainment. It also connects downtown to the Education Corridor, providing access to the University of North Texas at Dallas, Paul Quinn College and Cedar Valley College.
