There are many environmental and money-saving benefits to commuting by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). Using public transportation also has social benefits. Meet and make friends with people in your community who you’d never meet driving to work. The DART bus and rail systems reach Dallas and 12 of its suburban areas.
As a City employee, take advantage of riding DART at HALF the price of what the average person pays. Plano’s Discount Pass program makes monthly passes available for only $48 – a 50% savings on regular monthly pass prices.
We also offer FREE Day Passes for work-related travel. This bonus feature comes in handy if you have meetings in Dallas or surrounding areas serviced by DART.
Employees must request DART Monthly passes at least 30 days in advance to allow for processing (i.e. ask for a May pass in April). Passes not picked up by the eighth of the month are returned to DART. Purchase monthly passes at the Customer & Utility Services (CUS) customer service desk any weekday during business hours. To request Day Passes or to ask questions, contact Terry Maiale, CUS senior administrative assistant, at 972-941-7172.
See the DART Discount Pass flyer for links to the transit systems’ schedules and routes. DART helps you move about easier and cheaper.
