The Future of Dallas Public Transit: High Coverage or Increased Ridership?
On today’s B2B podcast we’re joined by John Boyd Jr., a principal of New Jersey-based The Boyd Company, a leader in corporate site selection. John shares his insights with us on the future of Dallas public transit.
“Dallas, like many high-growth cities, is dealing with congestion while also experiencing record low employment. Employers would certainly like to see commutes reduced, especially those workers living in the northern suburbs,” John said.
The city recently hosted a symposium on the future of Dallas’ mobility where Jarret Walker, who has been tapped to overhaul the bus system, said that Dallas can either have high coverage or ridership, not both.
John shared, “Dallas has the largest light rail system in North America at over 90 miles but less than two percent ridership. That means coverage is great, but it’s still not accessible for all.”
To continue on the track to cultivating a modern city, Dallas faces a huge decision for the future of public transportation. John argues that investment in high ridership is the wisest move for the city. “Dallas is on a roll, and investment in the right infrastructure will solve the current transportation challenges,” John added.
