Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)
Dallas has an extensive network of light rail lines, regional railways and bus services—all of which are accessible from the Hampton Station at the corner of Hampton Road and Wright Street. Hampton Station is served by the DART Rail Red Line, with connection to bus routes 11, 42, 453 and 510. Facilities include lifts/ramps for mobility-impaired passengers, a bicycle rack and nearly 500 free commuter parking spaces. The station has a monitored, climate-controlled waiting area with restrooms and ticket vending machines. To search schedules, maps and get more information, visit the DART website.
Hampton Station features artwork that highlights Elmwood Creek, as well as the neighborhood’s famous son, blues musician Stevie Ray Vaughan. The lyrics of Vaughan’s “Tick Tock” are inscribed on concrete pavers that flow through the station like a stream. Platform columns illustrate the flora and fauna of Elmwood Creek, with the bottom sections depicting water, fish and other forms of creek life; the middle sections depicting tree leaves and land animals such as frogs, grasshoppers and snakes; and the top sections depicting birds soaring in the sky. An untitled work by sculptor Edwin McGowin incorporates stylized animals and vegetation native to the Elmwood Creek area.
Operated by DART for the City of Dallas, the Dallas Streetcar is a daily sight on the Oak Cliff landscape. The free service begins at 5:30 a.m. and the cars run until midnight, making connections with the final DART Rail trains at Union Station downtown. Trains operate every 20 minutes.
