The federal bucks continue to roll in for Dallas Area Rapid Transit, which received a nearly $18 million advance for the Green Line light rail project from the Federal Transit Administration, officials announced this week. The new line opened this month in Carrollton, where next year it will connect with Denton County's A Train. The Green Line extends to the southeast about 11 miles to downtown Dallas, then another 10 miles to Buckner Boulevard. By 2025, it is projected to carry nearly 46,000 riders on weekdays. Overall the project is expected to cost $1.4 billion, with a federal New Starts share of $700 million.
