This is great news! At least we’ve won this small battle.

A Texas man can once again freely witness at a public transit station after being told by police that he would first have to buy a ticket if he wanted to share the gospel.
Daniel Bailey is a disabled man who has shared the gospel at a Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) location regularly for two years. However, a police officer recently told him a policy change meant he would have to buy a ticket daily if he wanted to continue witnessing at the downtown area station.
Bailey then contacted the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), which sent a letter to DART officials. And now Erik Stanley — with the ADF — says the situation has been resolved.
“ADF sent DART a letter and demanded that Christians not be treated as second-class citizens, simply because they choose to exercise their faith in public,” he says. DART officials corrected the policy and stated that they had no intention of silencing Bailey. The only stipulation is that Bailey has been asked to notify a DART official in advance of his witnessing efforts.
