Getting around Dallas without a car on a day to day basis is not a reality no matter how large its light rail system is.
As someone who used the system daily for the past few years (up until I moved), I think a huge problem Dallas has is train capacity. Every single morning, trains were completely full, to the point that people south of Park Ln often had to wait for another train because they were so full. They need to expand all the stations to accommodate 3 sets of 3 cars and go back to the every 10 minute schedule. Otherwise, I don't see how more people can possibly fit on the trains to increase numbers. They also need to extend later hours for bar crowds (even if only running a train every 30 minutes)
