FTA Funds TOD Study of DART’s D2 Project Stations
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has awarded Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) $1 million to plan for transit-oriented-development (TOD) at five stations along the planned two-mile Downtown Dallas (D2) Subway.
The D2 Subway project is a future second light rail line through downtown Dallas that extends from Victory Park to Deep Ellum while adding four new stations and relocating another.
The funded TOD study includes one surface station (Museum Way), three underground stations (Metro Center, Commerce, and CBD East) and the relocated Deep Ellum Station from just north of Gaston Avenue to just south of Live Oak Street (now referred to as Live Oak Station).
The FTA awarded a total of $22.97 million to 23 organizations around the country to support comprehensive planning projects that improve access to public transportation.
The funds are from FTA’s Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development Planning, which assists communities that are developing new or expanded mass transit systems.
