People can take an unlimited number of free rides on DART buses during Try Transit Week, which runs Sunday through Saturday, October 6-12. The offer is good on DART Local, Express, Flex and On Call services.

The promotion highlights the expanded and improved transit system in Greater Des Moines, including more routes, extended hours, the new DART Central Station in downtown Des Moines and the MyDART Trip Planner BETA that launched this week on

“Planning trips is easier than ever now, so we want to motivate people to discover just how many trips they can make on DART,” Marketing Director Kirstin Baer-Harding said. “We’re not the same DART you knew even 18 months ago – we’re going more places, more often, at more times of the day.”

Also as part of Try Transit Week, DART staff will meet with potential new riders at locations in downtown Des Moines, Johnston, West Des Moines and Altoona. Details available at
