All enrolled DMACC students, faculty and staff ride DART for FREE.
DART local, express, on-call and paratransit services are free to ride, so you can ride to school, work, run errands and more!
To ride free, you must
- be a currently enrolled DMACC student or current DMACC faculty or staff member; and
- use a DMACC DART Card or the free DART mobile pass courtesy of DMACC.
While DMACC offices are physically closed due to COVID-19, the easiest way to ride is by using the free DART mobile pass.
- First, download the free myDART app to your mobile device from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
- Second, make sure you have a myDART account associated with your dmacc.edu email address.
- If you do have an associated account, log into the app using your DMACC email address and the pass should be available in the ticket section of the app. Click on the pass to activate it, scan on the farebox and enjoy your free ride.
- If you don’t have an associated account, check your DMACC email inbox for an email from DART that contains a link to create your myDART account and follow the prompts.
If you would prefer to obtain a physical DMACC DART Card, please contact Brad Spielman at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

Once you have your DMACC DART Card, you are ready to ride! When you board the bus, scan the QR code on the Farebox, wait for it to register, find a seat and enjoy your trip.
As a reminder, DART is currently requiring that all riders wear a mask or face covering. Learn more about DART’s safety guidelines here.
