Bachman Lake is a light rail station located in Northwest Dallas for service on the DART Green Line and Orange Line.[2][3] The station opened as part of the Green Line's expansion in December 2010. It services nearby attractions such as Bachman Lake and surrounding neighborhoods. This is the last shared stop outbound between the Green and Orange Lines before the Orange Line branches off to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Because of this, it is one of the only three-platform DART stations.

History[edit]

The current Bachman Station is sited on land that was purchased at the turn of the 20th century by the City of Dallas from Reverend John Bachman.[4]

In 2014, a man was killed while trying to board a train, but was unable to do so and was pulled under the train.[5]
