DART – Let's Go.

DART Drives Connections
From education, to job opportunities, to culture, to healthcare, to transportation and so much more, DART helps North Texans connect with their community. DART is a critical connector for North Texas, making mobility easier for everyone—even those that do not ride.

As a cornerstone of the region's multi-modal transportation network, public transit is part of our livelihood and our region's continued economic growth. In fact, we'd say DART is moving North Texas Forward.
