Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s (DART’s) Green Line arrived in Carrollton on December 6, 2010, ushering in a new era of tremendous opportunity – for developers, citizens, potential residents and businesses.
Carrollton is a community looking to its future by reflecting on, and connecting with, its rich past. The rail lines that once carried cotton and grain through town now carry people to three new DART light rail stations. The stations link Carrollton directly to Dallas, other Metroplex cities, and the DFW Airport. Each station brings with it transit-oriented development (TOD) opportunities and new points of connection for residents, visitors and businesses.
Carrollton’s downtown area is the only transit intersection in the Dallas-Fort Worth region capable of three or more transit lines outside of downtown Dallas in the foreseeable future, and as a result, is ripe for development, including real estate, commercial and investment opportunities. It’s also predicted that this station will be the fourth largest transportation hub after Downtown Dallas, Downtown Fort Worth and DFW Airport, making Carrollton a place that is truly poised to be “Where Connections Happen.”
Carrollton's Trinity Mills Station is North Texas' largest publicly owned transit-oriented development site. The City and DART own more than 25 acres. For more on development opportunities, visit the Trinity Mills Transit Center District page or viewing our informational video here: Trinity Mills Video.
Carrollton has completed many studies and plans that have shaped our vision for the future. For more information click on the "TOD Reports" menu item to the left.
