Dallas Area Rapid Transit could vote next month to stop charging people who don’t live in its member cities for parking at light-rail stations. Would the move to stop charging residents of non-member cities for parking affect you?

Ronald Paris, McKinney: I am now retired. However, this will be great for commuters. I used to ride DART to downtown Dallas. It was economical and convenient. I think this will generate more riders and revenue.

Felicity Pearson, McKinney: It will affect me when DART stops charging; I live in McKinney and travel to Dallas on an intermittent basis for special events such as the State Fair and the North Texas Irish Festival. I’ve driven by the Parker Road Station, but it usually looks full and the method for paying seems confusing so I just drive further south to park and ride. So with the suspension, I’ll be more likely to use this station.
