DART Hosts Community Conversations

Public transportation plays an essential role in the lives of Delawareans. It provides vital connections, bolsters the economy, improves the environment and helps to enhance our quality of life. Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC) proudly operates DART services in the First State.

In efforts to continually improve services and provide an enhanced customer experience, DART would like to hear from you. Please join DART for a Community Conversation where preliminary proposals will be presented to gain feedback, as well as suggestions on future changes, prior to finalizing proposals for public hearing workshops in September.
