On Friday, May 12, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) invites North Texans to pedal to work as part of the Dallas area’s 2023 Bike to Work Day annual event.
Launched in 2001, Bike to Work Day is a national event to encourage people to try bicycle commuting as a healthy and safe alternative to driving. DART buses and trains have features that make it simple to combine riding your bike with riding transit. On the front of DART buses, you’ll find easy-to-use storage racks, while on rail you can just roll your bike onto the train. At rail stations and transit centers, DART offers bike racks as well as bike lids. Both are free of charge and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
DART Bike to Work Challenge
In celebration of Bike to Work Day, DART is inviting riders across North Texas to participate in the 2023 Bike to Work Challenge and enter for a chance to win one of four custom DART bikes. Contest rules are available here.
Here’s how to participate in the 2023 DART Bike to Work Challenge:
- Take a picture of yourself using your bike in tandem with DART to get to work.
