DART Lancaster-Kiest Station is in Shambles

On Friday, Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway and I were taking a tour of our council district. This is something that we do on an ongoing basis.

Dwaine had a photo shoot at the Kiest station. The Kiest train station in Oak Cliff is a mess. The place had not been cleaned in months, maybe years. The smell of urine was everywhere. Gang graffiti littered the station, and there were broken windows at the station as well. It was flat-out disgusting. Would this happen at the Mockingbird station? I doubt it.

Gary Thomas, the embattled President of DART, was grilled on Friday about the situation. I’m glad he called back; he was at a banquet when we first called.

I think what we will have to do is have someone inspect all of the Oak Cliff stations. We have been promised that the situation will be fixed within the next couple of days.
