Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does it work?
A: Contact the dispatch office at 265-6611. All scheduling is done out of this location. Let the dispatcher know where you need to be picked up and where you want to go. The dispatcher will send a bus to pick you up. A “standing order” for service at the same time every day can also be booked with only one call to the DART office. (Example: Every Monday at 7:30am or every Tuesday at 10:00am).
Q: Who can use Dial-A-Ride and When?
A: Anyone, any age, who is able to travel can use DART. Our doors are open to the general public!
Buses will operate on this schedule:
Monday – Friday, 6:00am – 5:00pm. Last call is 4:30pm.
We ask that you allow 30 – 45 minutes for the bus to arrive.
Some hints for using DART
Please place your calls one hour in advance. Keep your conversation with the dispatcher short. He will be busy!
Many people will be using the service. You may make several stops before arriving at your destination, so plan for a slightly longer ride on the bus than you would expect in a car.
Because other people are waiting, passengers are responsible for carrying their own packages from store to bus and from bus to home. Please limit your carry ons to 3 packages.
For their safety, an escort must accompany all wheelchair riders.
