How do I apply for DART Services?

We will guide you through the process and are here to answer any questions you have along the way.

  • You’ll start with a confidential interview with an ADA Paratransit Eligibility Specialist who will identify your specific transit use skills, abilities and limitations.
  • Your eligibility interview may include your own evaluation of your abilities, along with an assessment of your physical and cognitive ability to ride a fixed-route bus. Your balance, strength, coordination, range of motion, general orientation and cognitive abilities may be assessed.
  • You may have someone accompany you for the interview, which may take one to two hours. When interviewing in person, part of the assessment may be conducted outdoors, so dress appropriately.
