The vans are used for trips that cannot be made using other DART services and is available anywhere in Dallas, Ellis, Collin, Hunt, Rockwall, Kaufman and Navarro counties.
NCTCOG's federal funds would offset 35 percent of program costs while 60 percent would come from the users and 5 percent from DART in-kind services.
