The Red Line is a light rail line in the system of mass transit in Dallas, Texas (USA) operated by the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system. Along with the Blue Line, it is one of the original modern rail lines in Dallas.
The southwestern terminus of the line is at Westmoreland Station in southwest Dallas at the intersection of Illinois Avenue and Westmoreland Road. The line runs northeast, under the Dallas Convention Center and through downtown Dallas. Then the line follows Central Expressway (US 75) through north Dallas, Richardson and Plano, finally ending at the Parker Road Station at Park Boulevard near Central Expressway in Collin County.
The rail line was part of the initial launch of DART's light rail service in 1996. At the time, the line only ran from Westmoreland Station to Pearl Station in the northeast corner of downtown. In 1997, the Red Line was extended to Park Lane Station. On 18 December 2000, Cityplace Station, the southwest's first commercial subway station was opened along the Red Line underneath Cityplace Tower just northeast of downtown.
In 2002, the Red Line extended into Richardson, ending at Galatyn Park Station, extending the light rail service 9 miles (14.5 km) over its original length. Later that year, the line was opened to the Parker Road Station, an additional 3 miles (4.8 km) of track, its current terminus.
