DART operates local and express bus routes serving Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Richardson, Rowlett, Plano and University Park. To get going, call DART Customer Information at 214-979-1111 with your origin, destination and desired time of travel. Helpful operators will recommend the most convenient route and departure time, quote the one-way fare, and advise you of any necessary transfers along the way. Customers also can plan bus and rail trips from the convenience of their personal computers with the online DART Trip Planner available on http://www.DART.org

Biketrans commuting combines the cost-effectiveness of public transit with the health benefits of cycling. DART buses have bike racks on the front of the bus; any DART rider may use these racks. Bicycles brought on board DART Rail or the TRE must be placed in the area designated for disabled customers, provided it is not occupied.

Our free RideShare computerized match list puts you in touch with other commuters with similar schedules and travel habits who want to share the ride. Details are available at www.DART.org/vanpool.
