Now in Season: Going Green and Eating Local


photo courtesy of

Harvest the benefits of eating locally grown, seasonal produce by visiting one of the farmers’ markets that have cropped up near the DART System. This fresh approach to eating is healthy, affordable and good for the environment – especially when you take a train or bus to get there!

DART’s buses and trains both have low-floor sections so you can roll right on with a wagon or cart. Plus, you can plan your trip and purchase your DART passes digitally with the free GoPass app, available in both the App Store and the Google Play Store.

Make plans to visit one of these DARTable destinations soon!
