How DART Unlimited Access works
As an Unlimited Access partner, an employer contracts with DART to offer their employees free use of all Local, Express, Flex and On Call fixed route bus services. Employees ride free by simply showing an employee ID to the bus operator upon boarding.
Unlimited Access partnerships can be scaled to meet the needs of employers of all sizes as the cost of the program varies based on the number of employees served and proximity to DART service. DART can provide customizable marketing materials to promote the service to employees as well as on-site, how-to-ride training opportunities.
Benefits of transit access
Reducing barriers to transportation can help employers stand out when recruiting and retaining skilled workers. And the premium benefit of Unlimited Access extends beyond the workplace to essential destinations that support employees' overall quality of life, offering access to health care, retail, recreation, education opportunities and more.
- Recruitment and retention: The Unlimited Access program is a great tool for recruiting talent who experience barriers to transportation, and are part of the growing number of young professionals who don't own a personal vehicle or who are relocating from metropolitan areas where public transportation was a necessary means of travel.
- Expanded benefits package: Transit benefits are affordable for employers and help employees save money, reduce stress and use their commute more productively.
- Sustainability: Using public transit is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit road congestion. The Unlimited Access program can help advance workplace green initiatives by demonstrating an organization is being environmentally friendly.
