Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) opened a nearly 1-mile second phase of its Dallas line Streetcar on August 29, reaching Bishop Arts District via Zang Boulevard at 6th Street and a stop between Davis and 7th streets (Bishop Arts).

The free tram still runs between 09:30 and midnight seven days a week, with frequency improving to every 20 minutes along the entire Dallas Streetcar line, which now runs for 2.5 miles from Union Station to Bishop Arts and has six stops.

The extension was celebrated with a Dallas Streetcar Community Block Party on 7th Street between Madison and Bishop Avenues on August 27.

The first phase from Union Station to Dallas Methodist Medical Center opened in April 2015.
