DART is limiting the number of passengers allowed on each bus at any given time, based on bus seating capacity. Passenger boardings are through the rear door with no fare collection. Riders needing boarding assistance may continue boarding through the front door. Riders must wear face coverings when riding any DART bus, fixed route or paratransit. Those not wearing face coverings will not be allowed to board the bus or train. Children 12 years and under are not required to wear a face covering nor are individuals who are unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition; children ages 2 and under must not wear them.

The Delaware Transit Corporation, a subsidiary of the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), operates DART First State.
