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.

Note to Parents and Guardians

While travel for children 12 and under is free, parents and guardians are responsible for educating and making decisions about the safety and care of their children whenever traveling on transit. This includes when children are traveling unaccompanied and determining if their children can or should take transit unaccompanied.
