Congresswoman Johnson Announces $2 Million For DART Rail Line Extension
Dallas, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson today announced that Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has received $2 million in grant funding from the Federal Transit Authority for the Red and Blue Line Platform Extension Project. The funding adds to the $58 million awarded this year as part of the authority’s Capital Investment Grant.
“Improving transportation is a critical part of improving quality of life throughout North Texas, especially for those communities who need it most,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “Increased mobility can mean access to better jobs, better healthcare and even better educations. These are just a few of the reasons why these DART rail platform extensions will provide great benefit, including safety improvements, to some of District 30’s residents. I am delighted to recognize DART for receiving this funding and look forward to continuing to support their endeavors as I have during my time in Washington.”
