DART – It's All Connected ®

Go to school on a Full Ride -- at a Reduced Rate!

Are you a full-time college or trade school student? You may qualify for a reduced fare if you meet ALL of the following criteria:

  1. You attend a college, university, trade school or technical school physically located in the DART Service Area on a full-time, undergraduate basis.

  2. Your school does not participate in DART's Higher Education Pass Program.

  3. You have already obtained a DART-issued student ID.
If not, you do not qualify for a Reduced Fare.
You must pay the full fare to ride.



How to get your DART-issued student ID

  1. Complete the enrollment form.

  2. Ask your school registrar to sign and stamp the form OR attach a National Student Clearinghouse Current Enrollment Verification Certificate verifying that you are currently enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student. (Note: National Student Clearinghouse charges a $2.50 fee).

  3. Present your completed enrollment form (originals only), your current college photo ID and a $2.00 fee at the DART Store (Akard Station, 1401 Pacific Ave, Dallas, TX 75202; Monday-Friday, 9-11 a.m. or 2-4 p.m.)


Higher Education Pass Program


The following colleges and trade schools participate in a contracted pass program with DART. If you attend one of these schools, you must obtain your pass from your school.

Since participating schools receive passes at a discounted rate, students do not qualify for reduced fares purchased on the GoPass℠ mobile ticketing app, from a Ticket Vending Machine or from a bus farebox.
