In addition to bus service within the city of Des Moines and suburbs, DART offers other alternatives to driving alone for commuters in many of the surrounding communities. DART’s Rideshare program helps commuters locate other people to share rides in carpools and vanpools.
DART's Vanpool program has a fleet of full-size passenger vans and minivans used by groups of five to 15 commuters for trips to and from work. Nearly 100 vanpools are now on the road.
Carpools and vanpools can save time. Ridesharing also saves gas, insurance and car maintenance costs. Take some time to fill out DART's ridematching service registration and locate a vanpool near you.
