Learn more about DART Vanpools
VanpoolWith DART's vanpooling program, six to 15 people can share the ride to work for $480** a month, divided among all riders. DART supplies the van and insurance.
DART's Vanpool goes anywhere, anytime, so long as either the work or home destination is within Dallas, Denton or Collin Counties and does not originate within Tarrant County or other counties that we consider to be served by the vanpool program of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (the T).

Vanpools breeze past stop-and-go traffic on our growing network of high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, while getting you to work on time, relaxed and ready to work.
Emergency Ride Home
This service is provided for vanpoolers who have personal or work-related emergencies. Riders are given a ride home via taxi or a rental car, available two times each quarter. The cost of the Emergency Ride Home co-pay is $10.

Carpool/RideMatchIf not vanpooling, try carpooling.
Carpooling is another way you can avoid the aggravation of rush hour, while reducing traffic and pollution. And, as with vanpooling, it reduces the cost of parking.
We have a long list of people who want to share the ride.
Our free regionwide computerized system matches you with people who live and work near you, who have similar work schedules and want to carpool or vanpool.
Our RideMatch system can also tell you how many miles you are currently traveling, your commuting costs and the air pollution your vehicle is emitting.
