Paratransit Fares

Current Fares

ADA Paratransit fare is $4.00

Non-ADA Demand Response fare is $5.00

Effective July 1, 2017

ADA Paratransit fare is $4.00

Non-ADA Demand Response fare is $6.00

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures individuals with disabilities comparable transportation within ¾ mile of a local regular bus (fixed route.) As a result of a previously approved phased increase to DART Paratransit fares, beginning July 1, 2017, the Non-ADA Demand Response Fare will be $6.00. Both the ADA Paratransit and County Connector* Fares will remain at $4.00. If both the beginning and ending points of a trip are within the ¾ mile of a local regular bus (fixed route) during the days and hours the route operates, it is an ADA Paratransit trip and the fare is $4.00. If not, it is a Non-ADA Demand Response trip, resulting in a $6.00 fare.

The County Connector fee is $4.00.*

The fare for your specific trip will be confirmed at the time of your reservation. If you have specific questions regarding fares or to determine if you qualify for a Regular Bus (Fixed Route) Reduced Fare, visit www.DartFirstState.com or call 1-800-553-3278, Option 5.

Please know that the fare for your specific trip will be confirmed at the time of your reservation booking.

*If you are traveling to another county, the second/third leg of your trip is considered the County Connector.
