DART Helps You Discover More

Not owning a vehicle or choosing not to drive is an option when you live North Texas, thanks to DART.

Trains and buses make it possible for you to get to the places that matter most to you – like work, college, the airports, entertainment, medical appointments and more.

Garland has had light rail service since 2002. Downtown Rowlett Station opened four years ago. Both cities have had bus service for more than 30 years. Between the two, there are 23 bus routes. These bus routes and rail stations become a portal to the region’s transportation network.

DART’s expansive bus service and 93-miles of light rail also connects you to Fort Worth Transportation Authority’s Trinity Railway Express that takes you to Fort Worth, and the Denton County Transportation Authority’s A-Train that takes you to Denton.

Ready to start exploring? Here are a few things to consider when riding DART:

Operation Hours

DART buses and trains operate daily from approximately 5 a.m. to midnight. DART Rail offers service every 8-15 minutes during rush hours, and 20 minutes during the midday and weekends, and 30 minutes late at night.

Ticket Fares

Need a ticket just for the day? You’ll want to purchase a “Day Pass.” For adults, this will cost you $5 for local trips and $10 for a regional pass. The best way to purchase your transit pass is on DART’s free GoPass® app available from the App Store or the Google Play store.

Trip Planning

Attending an event downtown? Heading west to the airport? The GoPass app is a great travel tool. It 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 contact DART Customer Service at 214-979-1111.
