Why you soon might have to pay up to ride the Dallas streetcar

Staff Photographer

The free ride could soon be over for Dallas Streetcar passengers, Dallas City Council members said Monday.

Members of the council’s Mobility, Infrastructure and Sustainability Committee expressed support for a fare on the Dallas Streetcar, which is operated in partnership with Dallas Area Rapid Transit. But the council members said their support isn’t about money generated by a fare — the revenue would only cover a small portion of the streetcar’s annual cost — but, rather, a matter of fairness.

North Texas community planned to help adults with autism

DALLAS — The first part of a $12 million project in Denton County that’s aimed at creating job and housing opportunities for adults with autism officially launches this year.

The Dallas Morning News reports starting in mid-February, adults 18 and older who have a primary diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and who have completed high school can apply for placement in the 29 Acres Transition Academy, the founders say.

Residents will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis as they meet the criteria. Training will begin in August for the eight who are accepted.
