Feedback needed: proposed bus shelter locations

Posted on December, 28 2023

Riders and other central Iowans should provide feedback on where DART is proposing to build several new bus shelters throughout the Greater Des Moines region. DART is especially interested in feedback anyone may have regarding these proposed locations, specifically if they believe the locations of these shelters would negatively impact the historical or cultural resources available nearby. 

Proposed bus stop locations 

As of December 2023, DART is proposing to add new benches and bus shelters to the following locations in Des Moines:
