GE Transportation has provided an integrated system for 15 new stations on the 24 mile-long Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Green Line, which went into service in December 2010 in the US.

The company's system, worth about $35m, includes the Ultra Cab II for the onboard cab signalling portion of the system, a Vital Logic Controller for wayside interlocking control and a centralised control system that coordinates activities.

DART intends that its expansion programme will double the DART Rail System to 90 miles, while future Blue Line expansion plans continue to unfold.
