This project was a collaborative endeavor between the City of Dallas, North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), DART, and the FTA. This $45 million project consisted of an approximate 1.6-mile, dedicated streetcar track extending from near Union Station in downtown Dallas to the Colorado Boulevard and Beckley Avenue intersection in Oak Cliff. Additionally, the project included the procurement of streetcar rolling stock procurement.
