Get the 411 on DART Stop IDs

Each bus stop and rail station in the DART System is labeled with a unique 5-digit identification number, called a Stop ID. The number is located on the sign.

You also can find a Stop ID number using the online Stop ID Finder.

With Stop ID numbers, you can get faster results when using the DART Trip Planner or when calling 214-979-1111 to use the new and improved Customer Information Line. If you travel from the same stops regularly, keep a list of Stop ID numbers handy to make trip planning easier.

For example, you need to catch the Route 350 bus between the Collin College-Spring Creek Campus in Plano and Parker Road Station.

There are two bus stops just outside your neighborhood – one on either side of the street – so you’ll need the Stop ID number for both. Also, the bus stops at the transit center at Parker Road Station have a different Stop ID than the light rail platform.

Parker Road at Raton Lane traveling toward Parker Road Station – Stop ID 27438

Parker Road Station Transit Center – Stop ID 33313

Using Stop IDs, here’s how you would find the next bus (or train):

On GoPass
Launch the GoPass app
Click Travel Tools
Click either Where’s My Bus?® or Where’s My Train?TM
Click Stop ID
Enter the 5-digit Stop ID and choose Search
