Relax as You Commute on DART for Half Price


Do you have a stressful drive to the job? DART-ing to work could be just the solution to return calm to your commute. Employees who have or are considering DART (Dallas Area Rail Transit) over driving can take advantage of the City’s DART Discount Pass Program. The benefit is you save 50% off the standard fare!

As you’ve probably heard, DART instituted a 20% fare increase on everything except their midday pass. It is effective August 18.

Our employee passes used to cost $40/month – half off the regular monthly price. Due to DART’s across-the-board fare hike, their normal monthly passes now cost the average rider $96.

For Plano employees, our Discount Passes will cost $48 per month beginning September 1, 2018. At this price, the passes are still a tremendous bargain!

Other DART changes to know:

  • Weekly passes are going away.
  • Reduced fare for high school students is expanding to include the weekend.
  • Midday pass availability is extending to weekends.
  • The GoPass app is improving and GoPassTap, a reloadable transit card, is being added enabling you to easily add money to your DART account in three different ways:
  • Visit hundreds of retail locations with cash or credit,
  • Go online to the DART Store, or
  • Call DART customer service

Join all of the other Team Plano members already using the Discount Pass Program to get to and from work. Register your interest in purchasing a pass, then pick up your time and energy-saving pass at the Customer and Utility Services desk – Municipal Center, first floor.

Contact Senior Planner Kendra Cobbs (972-941-7435) for more information or review the Discount Pass Program flyer.
