Update on DART Services

Wilmington --

As of Monday, March 16, all DART public transit services are operating as regularly scheduled. Due to the presence of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Delaware and the direction of medical professionals, Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC) has implemented several additional measures to clean facilities and vehicles used by the public to help limit the spread of the illness.

For customers who ride our public transit service, all DART buses have and continue to be thoroughly disinfected with vital oxide antimicrobial spraying solution and we are thoroughly cleaning areas of frequent contact throughout the day and night to keep our buses as clean as possible.

Our public facilities and lobbies are continually being disinfected including counters, public seating, door handles, and counters.

As of Tuesday, March 17, DART's ticket store at 718 N. Market Street will be closed; however, DART passes can be purchased through DART Pass, the mobile payment app, online, at Amtrak Station or DART Administration Buildings in Wilmington and Dover. A list of other sales locations is available at Ticket Outlets.

To support Delaware Public Schools, DART is offering students free bus rides on regularly scheduled bus routes to access school meal programs from 10 AM to 2 PM until schools are back in session.

The safety and well-being our customers and employees are our top priority. We know the importance of connecting people to their destinations, safely, and efficiently. We are closely monitoring this rapidly evolving situation through Delaware's Division of Public Health and the CDC to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information to guide our operations.

If you are feeling sick, please do not visit public facilities and avoid public transportation. For more information on the state's response to the Coronavirus, visit de.gov/coronavirus.
