Southern Dallas County is served with multiple transit options. Public transit includes Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), which includes light rail and bus service, the Dallas Street Car serving North Oak Cliff, and the GoLink on-demand service.
Light-rail service connects from its southernmost point at UNT Dallas to Downtown Dallas to DFW Airport. Also serving Southern Dallas County is STAR Transit, a public bus transportation service, offering bus transportation in Mesquite, Balch Springs, Seagoville, Hutchins and DeSoto.
As the North Texas region continues to experience unparalleled growth, becoming a national and international destination for both residents and corporations, DART has undertaken a complete, blank-slate redesign of the existing bus system. Working with all 13 service-area cities, employers, community leaders, and transit riders, DART has developed a new bus system that is designed to ensure passengers have safe and easy access to employment, education, and entertainment areas across the DART Service Area. Changes include: Increased frequency, less travel time, improved service, and better access.

An essential part of the new DART bus network is the expansion of GoLink, DART’s on-demand, curb-to-curb microtransit service solution that operates in zones across the DART service area. GoLink offers direct-request demand-responsive service with connections to other DART routes as well as curb-to-curb service anywhere within a specified zone. With the start of the new bus service schedule in 2022, 13 new GoLink zones will be added, bringing the total to 30. 8 of those serve Southern Dallas County.
