DART extends D-Line hours for Yankee Doodle Pops

Posted July 01, 2014 in Downtown, Community Web Exclusives

The hours of the free-to-ride D-Line Downtown Shuttle will be extended to 11 p.m. on Thursday, July 3, to take people to the Des Moines Symphony’s Yankee Doodle Pops.

PRESS RELEASE -- DART extends D-Line hours for Yankee Doodle Pops

Concert goers can more easily find parking in the downtown area west of the Des Moines River, then ride the D-Line to the concert. The D-Line loops through downtown on Grand Avenue and Locust Street and picks up passengers at any of the designated stops along the route. The D-Line is free to ride and departs from stops approximately every 10 minutes. The shuttle will take them back to their stops afterward.

The D-Line’s route will be detoured all day due to bridge closures that day:

·       6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. – Throughout the business day, the shuttle will operate on Grand Avenue and Locust Street through most of downtown, then detour on Walnut Street over the Walnut Street Bridge to the East Village and around the Capitol Complex.

·       6 p.m. to 11 p.m. – During the evening, the shuttle will operate on the same detoured route throughout downtown and across the Des Moines River. However, beginning at 6 p.m., the shuttle will travel only as far as East 6th Street, which will be the main pick-up and drop-off point for concert-goers.

·       After 10 p.m. – After the fireworks, the shuttle will carry passengers westbound only, delivering them to their vehicles throughout downtown.
