About DART

DART is far more than just “the thing you ride.” It is your “trusted guide” to discovering all that North Texas has to offer.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) gets you around Dallas, Texas, and 12 surrounding cities with modern public transit services and customer facilities tailored to make your trip fast, comfortable and economical. Our extensive network of DART Light Rail, Trinity Railway Express commuter rail, bus routes and paratransit services moves more than 220,000 passengers per day across our 700-square-mile service area.

Discover DARTable Destinations

With DART you can easily explore North Texas and go someplace you’ve never been. From arts and culture, to sports, recreation, dining, and special events, DART can get you to more places than you can imagine. From hidden gems in every neighborhood to the trendiest spots in town, every trip can be a new adventure. Discover what excitement awaits you at

Not without your GoPass®

DART’s GoPass app makes discovering everything DARTable a breeze. Whether you are traveling by rail, bus or both, you’ve got a great travel tool literally at your fingertips. You can purchase DART passes on the app, and learn when the next bus or train will arrive or leave from any station. The app also features a trip planner to help you get to your destination, and even offers a section highlighting local events accessible by transit.

You also can adventure beyond the DART Service Area – a GoPass regional ticket is good on the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) to Fort Worth, Trinity Metro in Fort Worth, and the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) system, which includes the A-train between DART’s Green Line and downtown Denton.

Download the GoPass app from the App Store or the Google Play store.

Enjoy the best in bus services

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.
