Limited Flex Service
This service will also operate as a limited flex service between scheduled stops, and will deviate within the Flex Zone for $3.50. Customers may request a flex trip, up to seven days in advance, by calling 515-283-8136 during DART service hours. Flex trip requests upon boarding may be accommodated when time and space is available.
Flex service trips are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited to trips that ensure the service is reliable for all customers. You will be asked to get on or off the bus at a location that is within a few blocks of your origin or destination. Some locations are not accessible to DART buses. Remember to sit or stand where the driver can see you and arrive at your stop five minutes early.
To cancel or change your flex trip reservation, call 515-283-8136 during DART service hours and at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up, or a no-show will be recorded. More than four no-shows in a calendar month may result in a suspension of your Flex service.
