Arlington’s reputation as the largest U.S. city without a public transportation system is about to take a ding when the new MAX bus line begins service on August 19.
The bus service is an express route (meaning, it’s up to the drivers to find the fastest way between the fixed points) connecting CentrePort/DFW Airport Station and College Park Center. A stop within the entertainment district is in the works, but the location has not been determined yet. One-day passes will cost $5. For more details, check out MAX’s website.
We’re happy that this new service, like all other services in the DART system, will carry bikes. Bring your bicycle along so you can easily complete the last mile of your trip once you arrive at your destination! BikeTexas is proud that most bus systems in Texas have bike racks– we first started lobbying for bike racks on buses at the local level in the mid-90s, and it caught on quickly with Austin, Dallas, and Houston leading the way. Now, nearly everywhere you can catch a local bus in Texas, you can also bring a bike. We’ve been happy to partner with so many local bus agencies to make sure that cyclists can use public transit, too!
