DALLAS — If you're planning to kick off the new year with a bang, there are ways for you to do it responsibly.
DART is continuing its partnership with Coors Light to provide a Free Rides program for New Year's Eve. The program will run from 6 p.m. on Dec. 31 until the end of service.
Free rides will be available for all buses, trains, Paratransit Services and the TRE between EBJ Union Station and CentrePort/DFW Airport Station. No passes or coupons will be required.
“As we usher in the new year, we encourage everyone to celebrate responsibly by taking advantage of the free transportation offered through our partnership with DART,” said Michael Nordman, Molson Coors senior manager of community affairs.
DART Rail will add extra departure times for the evening to go with their usual weekend schedules. You can check those final times online.
