Based on recommendations from the CDC, DART encourages you to buy your transit pass with the GoPass app instead of at a ticket vending machine to avoid contact with surfaces others may have touched.
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
In addition to thorough nightly cleanings, DART light rail vehicles receive additional cleanings at the eight end of line terminus stations throughout the day. Red and Blue Line trains are cleaned every 60 minutes. Orange and Green Line trains are cleaned every 90 minutes.
DART buses and trains are also cleaned on a rotating basis with hydrogen peroxide-based cleaning solutions to sanitize and disinfect each vehicle. Almost 85% of the DART bus fleet is currently equipped with an electronic air purification and disinfection technology system (either ultraviolet or ionization technology) to kill airborne viruses as air is recirculated throughout the bus.
DART is prepared to escalate our cleaning process for transit vehicles should the need arise. We continue to enforce our procedures to isolate vehicles and areas that have been exposed to unsanitary and unhygienic situations. This includes removing vehicles from service that have been exposed to biohazard situations from passengers.
