DART – Let's Go.

DART 41411

SMS Texting Service

Use DART's SMS text service* to get the next scheduled bus or train times for your stop.

How it works:



  1. Find your Stop ID

  2. Text dart [Stop ID] to 41411
    Be sure to include the word "dart" , a space, and then the Stop ID number, for example "dart 28076" (but without the quotes)

  3. You'll get back scheduled times for the stop#


# The DART SMS text service will return real-time estimates when available. Look for (est) after the time. Scheduled times, noted with (sch), will continue to be shown if real-time estimates are not available.

* Message and data rates may apply. For Terms and Conditions, click here.


Some stops have multiple routes. To see times for one route only:

  • Text dart [Stop ID] rt[route number] to 41411. For example, text dart 28076 rt749 to 41411 to get back times for route 749 at Rosa Parks Plaza. (Include a space between dart, the Stop ID number and rt[route number].)

Other tips:

  • Use rtred, rtblue, rtgreen, rtorange or rttre for train routes.
  • For the best results when looking up rail stations and other DART facilities on the Stop ID Finder, enter the station/facility name, city and state.
  • To see more times at a stop, reply M
  • To refresh a previously requested stop, reply R
