High School Students Can Ride DART Reduced on Weekdays Only


A valid high school ID is often a great way to get discounts at places like fast food restaurants, clothing stores, technology retailers, movie theaters and museums.

That same ID can mean a discount on DART, too.

Many high school students use DART to get to and from campus, part-time jobs or even dual-credit classes at a community college. Current, full-time students attending classes at a high school – including public, private and charter schools – can purchase Reduced Fares on an individual basis.

To qualify for Reduced Fare, you must:

  • Be able to show a DART Police or Fare Enforcement officer:
  • Travel on a weekday, Monday-Friday only. Regular fares are required to ride on weekends.

Purchase a DART High School Photo ID by visiting the DART Store, located at DART Headquarters at 1401 Pacific Ave., Dallas (Akard Station). The DART Store is open Monday-Friday through Friday, and photo IDs are made between 9-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. only. Bring proof of age such as a driver’s license, passport or other substantiating documentation, and proof of residency within the DART Service Area, such as a utility bill. There is a $2 fee to cover the cost of the card.

Qualified students may purchase the following pass types of Reduced Fares: 2-Hour, Day Pass and 31-Day Pass. Passes are valid on all DART, TRE, The T and DCTA buses and trains.

The Reduced Fare pass must be purchased at a ticket vending machine. High School passes are not available in the GoPass app.
