Grodach explains commuting situation in Dallas County

The Dallas Morning News quoted Carl Grodach, associate professor in the UT Arlington School of Urban and Public Affairs, in a story that examined census numbers and commuters in Dallas County. “Most places are polycentric – they have multiple job centers,” Grodach said. “To me, the surprising thing is that the reverse commute [from Dallas County] is so much smaller. You have places like Frisco, Plano, building up their own job centers. And Dallas is always concerned that these other places are stealing jobs from them.”

Transit service discussed

MyFoxDFW.com, WFAA.com and NBCDFW.com reported that Arlington officials plan to try a pilot program of providing bus service from UT Arlington to the Trinity Express Centreport DFW station just south of DFW Airport. The bus service is a small step in a potentially bigger plan to ultimately integrate Arlington and other North Texas cities into DART.
