From what I've seen, Dallas (like most cities in the US) has pockets of city-ness, but the vast majority is freeways and stripmall-dom.

But as we can see, the trend is finally starting to reverse itself.

If Dallas ever sets up it's streetcar system around the city, these park and rides will be useless because the streetcar can feed into the light rail system just like the bus system does to Washington.

Celebrate the Green Line

September 12 Super Saturday
The public is invited to preview the new Green Line stations on September 12. DART and its partners will host food, fun and entertainment from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at each of the four new stations. At MLK, Jr. Station, J.B. Jackson Jr. Boulevard and Trunk Avenue, DART will have a community-oriented event for the entire family. Fair Park Station, Parry and Exposition avenues, will offer four hours of Fair Park fun! Baylor University Medical Center Station, Hall and Junius streets, will feature a health and fitness fair with screenings, demonstrations and much more. Deep Ellum Station, at Good-Latimer Expressway and Gaston Avenue, will celebrate the colorful art, music and history of Deep Ellum.

Passengers riding DART Rail and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) to Super Saturday can transfer easily to the Green Line:
Southbound Red and Blue Line passengers transfer to the Green Line at Pearl Station.
Northbound Red and Blue Line passengers transfer to the Green Line at Akard Station.
TRE passengers transfer to the Green Line at Victory Station.
Regular fares apply on the Red and Blue Lines and the TRE.

September 14 Customer Appreciation Day
Regular weekday and weekend service on the Green Line starts September 14, and we're kicking it off with coffee provided by McDonald's and donuts by Krispy Kreme from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the four new stations and Victory Station. Volunteers at the stations will assist riders and provide information about the new fare schedule and routes changes.

September 19 Victory Park Celebrates Full-Time Service
DART will celebrate full-time service at Victory Station from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on September 19 with fun and food provided by the Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, Katy Trail, Hard Rock Cafe and WFAA-TV.

So is it just the section between Downtown and the State Fairgrounds that is opening tomorrow, with the entire line opening next year?

Wishful thinking but... not really. Suburban-ness is so entrenched & pervasive that density is just a concept alien to modern American cities.

The Orange Line has already started construction. It opens to Las Colinas in 2011 and DFW Airport in 2013.
