 DALLAS STREETCAR

Besides the heritage streetcar line in downtown Dallas along McKinney Avenue, which was eventually extended further downtown on 6 June 2015, a 2.6 km modern streetcar starter line was opened on 13 April 2015 linking Union Station with Oak Cliff along S Houston Street. On 29 Aug 2016, this line was extended by approx. 1 km south to Bishops Arts District.
