Dallas, TX 
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) – SLRV

Challenge:

Increase capacity / enhance ADA accessibility

Solution:

Innovative re-design for a long-term customer

DART wanted to increase passenger capacity and enhance ADA accessibility without replacing existing cars or re-building platforms. This unique challenge called for an innovative solution: inserting new, custom-designed low-floor sections in the middle of their existing high-floor trains which created the Super Light Rail Vehicle (SLRV). The system opened in 1996 and continues to be one of the fastest-growing, most successful light rail systems in the country.
