Mustang Express now offering Saturday service

SMU’s Mustang Express now operates on Saturdays. The popular free rides serving the Bishop Boulevard, Greenville Avenue and Amesbury Drive areas via the Mockingbird Lane Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) station begin Saturday rounds Aug. 25, 2012.

The shuttles will follow the non-session weekday schedule while fall and spring classes are in session. Mustang Express service runs from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, with service about every 20 minutes at each stop. (Construction on Airline Road is expected to create some shuttle delays until December 2012.)

Faculty and staff members who plan to make DART a part of their daily commute can purchase transit passes through Parking and ID Card Services (Park ‘N Pony) at the discounted DART Corporate Employer rate. In addition, transit-pass subsidies are available for qualifying employees who don’t park a car on campus and do not purchase an SMU parking sticker.

Students can get a DART transit pass for a one-time charge of $5. Renewals are free.

All DART transit passes must be pre-ordered online. For more information, contact Parking and ID Card Services, 214-768-7275 (214-SMU-PARK).
