Parker Road station is a DART Light Rail station in Plano, Texas. It is located at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Archerwood Street near US 75 (Central Expressway). It opened December 9, 2002, and is the northern terminus of the Red Line. It was originally called East Plano Transit Center before the light rail station opened up. The Orange Line terminates some trains at Parker Road Station during peak hours for direct service to DFW Airport Station.[1]

History[edit]

In July 2011, it was announced that Parker Road Station along with the North Carrollton / Frankford station on the Green Line and the Northwest Plano Park & Ride would be part of a pilot program that charged passengers from non-DART cities for parking.[2] However, on April, 3, 2014 DART eliminated the program (due to costs), but at Parker Road, cars with permits (passengers in a DART city) would have a few reserved lots, and the other lots were free for anyone to park.[3]
