Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has partnered with paratransit service provider, MV Transportation, and rideshare service provider, Lyft, to offer on-demand paratransit service in Dallas, Texas. This pilot supplements MV Transportation’s operation of DART’s paratransit program, enabling 160 participating paratransit riders to book free Lyft rides for their travel needs. Ride costs are covered under the existing contract between DART and MV Transportation, and the program will be operated on a month-by-month basis. This partnership expands the system’s paratransit capacity by 7% and aims help elderly and disabled users access timely rides when needed.
Contributed through a partnership between the Shared-Use Mobility Center, ITS America, and the Federal Transit Administration’s Mobility on Demand Program
