If you want to leave your bike at the station, DART’s got you covered. Lock up your bike in one of more than 140 bike lids located at most rail stations and transit centers. Bikes also are welcome on all DART Rail trains, the Trinity Railway Express and the Dallas Streetcar. Likewise, most DART buses have an easy-to-use bike rack on the front of the vehicle.

Who knows, maybe biking to work will become a habit – which will certainly cut down on your visits to the gym! Find out more about bike transit at DART.org/bikes.

Take the challenge

In addition to Bike to Work Day, DART and the North Central Texas Council of Governments are hosting a Bike to Work Challenge to encourage bicycle commuting during the month of May. You’ll not only help the environment and improve your health, but also earn bragging rights and possibly win gift cards worth up to $100 from Richardson Bike Mart – all by riding as much as possible.

Participate in the Bike to Work Challenge by logging your daily commute activities at TryParkingIt.com. The website enables commuters to both record the bicycle miles ridden and find alternatives to driving. To be eligible for prizes, participants must be residents of a DART service-area city – Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Richardson, Rowlett, Plano or University Park – or have a work destination with a zip code beginning with “75.”
