Rt. 305 - Beach Connection
DART's Route 305, Beach Connection, operates from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend and provides bus service from Wilmington to Rehoboth Beach on Friday nights, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. The Route 305 connects with the Resort Transit service at the Rehoboth Park & Ride lot.
The Beach Connection is a comfortable motor coach that offers 45 seats, 2 wheelchair positions along with under coach storage compartments for beach gear and luggage. Please note that seating is limited, with no reserved seating.
Route 305 stops at the Wilmington Train Station, Christiana Mall, Odessa Park & Ride in Middletown, Scarborough Road Park & Ride lot in Dover, and the Rehoboth Park & Ride lot.
The one-way cash fares are $13.00 from Wilmington and $7.80 from Dover. Riders are encouraged to buy a 4/5-Zone Daily Pass for $22.00, which can also be used on all the Resort Transit routes. The DARTCard can be used to purchase a 4/5-Zone Daily Pass on the bus.
The DARTCard is a discounted stored value card (used just like cash) that can be purchased at DART First State Transportation stores, sales outlets, or online, and is available in seven different denominations. For an even greater discount, the DARTCard can be used to purchase a Daily Pass on the bus! DARTCards cannot be re-charged, therefore, when the value runs out, a new card has to be purchased.
While at the beach, you may purchase DARTCards from the following locations:
- DART First State Rehoboth Park & Ride (Seasonal)
- Cape Henlopen Senior Center
11 Christian Street
- Big Oaks Campground (Seasonal)
