DART is fixed-route transit service operated in King County under contract with Hopelink, using smaller transit vehicles with the flexibility to perform a limited number of off-route deviations upon request.
In addition to operating fixed routing according to a regular schedule, DART vehicles can also go off route to pick up and drop off passengers within a defined service area. Fully accessible DART vehicles are smaller than regular Metro coaches, are wheelchair lift-equipped and have bicycle racks.
Everyone is welcome on DART service
DART Service Areas
Service hours and days vary from route to route. Select a route number below for more information.
With a few in-city exceptions, DART routes generally operate in suburban communities within King County that have a need for slightly more flexible service due to lower population density, greater distances and fewer public transportation options.
The fares are the same as those on Metro's regular bus service, including the acceptance of ORCA cards. See more about Fares & ORCA
You can request customized rides on DART by calling the DART reservation office or submitting an online request. You need to make your trip request at least two hours before you want to be picked up, and you can make your reservations for 30 days at a time, up to 30 days in advance.
Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis during the following hours:
- Monday thru Friday: 5 AM – 11 PM
- Saturday: 7:30 AM – 9:30 PM
- Sunday/Holidays: 9:30 AM – 6:30 PM
You can also call at other times and leave a message.
A limited number of off-route deviations, only, can be made on any given trip. Vans can deviate from their fixed routes to serve other locations within the service area, but they can not necessarily provide door-to-door service due to safety and other operational considerations (narrow streets, cul-de-sacs, etc.). You may need to board/deboard at a location a block or more away from the location you requested.
