DART vehicles will also receive additional cleanings throughout the day.
DART said that service could be adjusted further as the situation concerning coronavirus evolves.
According to DART, ridership has decreased since the outbreak as many North Texans remain at home under shelter-in-place orders.
The temporary service adjustments will reflect the current ridership demand and provide services for North Texas riders who rely on buses and trains to get to jobs, stores, and medical appointments, DART said.
