DART and the city of Dallas are planning Central Link, a set of streetcar tracks that will connect the Dallas Streetcar (left) and the M-Line Trolley (right), adding another east-west transit line through the Central Business District. Central Link to integrate streetcar systems A seamless connection between the Bishop Arts District and the Dallas Arts District is less than five years away. The Dallas Streetcar Central Link will connect several downtown-area districts by linking the modern Dallas Streetcar line to the M-Line Trolley, a historic streetcar operated by the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority. Central Link is part of a program of interrelated projects DART is pursuing, along with the D2 Subway and the Platform Extensions Project. “Central Link is a critical piece of the Downtown Dallas 360 Plan, offering another mode of transit for workers, residents and visitors,” said Jacob Browning, urban planning manager at Downtown Dallas, Inc. DART operates the Dallas Streetcar for the city. The Dallas City Council has approved the locally preferred alignment for Central Link. 9
