Dallas Area Rapid Transit has expanded its $1.8 million Green Line and service began Monday on the newly completed 28-mile, 20-station line.

DART says the update, four years in the making, includes 24 more miles and 15 additional stations creating light rail connections from southeast Dallas to the northwest cities of Farmers Branch and Carrollton.

DART in September 2009 began operating the initial phase of the Green Line, with service to the Deep Ellum (EL'-um) entertainment district, Baylor University Medical Center and Fair Park, home of the State Fair of Texas.

DART, which also operates a Red Line and a Blue Line, provides transportation for Dallas and a dozen surrounding cities in a 700-square-mile service area.
