Free Transit for Children 12 and Under

Children aged 6 to 12 are now able to ride conventional and handyDART buses for free, unaccompanied and without requiring a fare product or identification.

Children aged 5 and under must be accompanied by someone 12 years or older to ride the bus, and must board and depart at the same stop as their guardian.
