DARTS Transportation Services

DARTS has provided services for older adults for 40 years.  In 1974, DARTS started as a grant program to provide educational opportunities for seniors. Transportation services were soon offered when getting to the classes proved to be a barrier for seniors' participation.

DARTS began to provide transportation for any person with a disability in 1979. In 1993, DARTS became the ADA provider for Dakota County. 

Today, DARTS provides dependable transportation service to riders throughout Dakota County. DARTS drivers are professional, courteous, and trained in accessible vehicle operation.
