DART’s new fare structure and ticketing options arrive August 18. Fare capping helps you get the best deal with every ride, and, with the new GoPass® app or a registered GoPass® Tap card, you get more rides for your money.
See how the new fare system benefits riders like you:
Meet Nicole: Most weekdays and some Saturdays, Nicole spends $6 on a Day Pass through the GoPass® app. Today, she checked her GoPass® Wallet to see how many passes she’d purchased and activated this month — she’s up to 14 days, or $84. Way to go, Nicole! With just two more Day Passes — or by spending $12 more — she won’t have to pay for another pass until the next calendar month.
Meet Tim: At 10 a.m., he taps his way aboard a bus, and the system automatically charges him $2 for a Midday Pass. When he boards another bus at 1 p.m., the system does not charge him again — he’s still within the Midday Pass period. When he taps aboard a third bus at 3 p.m., the system charges Tim an additional $3 for a PM Pass. His total trip cost $5 — still less than a day pass!
Meet Jordan: Jordan taps the card reader at various times throughout her day with a registered GoPass® Tap card during the first part of a calendar month. Her total taps at the card reader equal the cost of a Monthly Pass. Good news, Jordan: No need to pay another penny — you’re covered until next month. What if Jordan used the GoPass® App instead? If she activates $96 worth of passes during a calendar month, a Monthly Pass will appear in her GoPass® Wallet.
