The new Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Hidden Ridge Station at Carpenter Ranch will welcome its first riders April 9. The station is situated on the Orange Line between the Dallas College North Lake Campus and Irving Convention Center stations.
The City of Irving worked closely with DART on the location and design for the new station. It will mainly serve Verizon’s Hidden Ridge project, a 110-acre mixed-use development, and will have 136 parking spots on the southwest side, six bus bays and five “kiss-and-ride” spaces.
“Irving is known for a robust and growing corporate landscape,” said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer. “The Hidden Ridge Station with direct access to the Verizon Hidden Ridge development and other nearby offices is a vital component in attracting a talented workforce and new visitors to the area.”
The Hidden Ridge development will feature retail space, restaurants, apartments, a hotel and additional office space.
Riders may notice crews completing final construction on a few details at the station, but train and bus service will begin April 9. Watch a time-lapse video of crews installing canopies at the station, courtesy of ICTN:
