Akard Street is a DART Light Rail station located in the City Center District of downtown Dallas, Texas on Pacific Avenue, between Akard and Field Streets. It opened on June 14, 1996, and is a station on the Red, Orange, Green and Blue lines, serving Elm Place, One Main Place, Renaissance Tower, Thanks-Giving Square and Thanksgiving Tower.

Akard Station was closed on May 29, 2008, for more than a month to raise the platform level to match the height of the 100 new DART Light Rail cars also being modified at that time. The station reopened on July 7, 2008.[2]
