DART (Dial-A-Ride-Transportation) is designed for people whose disability or health condition prevents them from using regular fixed-route bus service. DART’s courteous, friendly, well-trained drivers are able to safely assist guests aboard clean, air-conditioned, wheelchair equipped vehicles. Trips can be made for any reason, such as health care, employment, shopping, senior centers, schools, recreation, social activities and more.
DART also assists people with transportation needs outside the area by making travel plans with other transportation providers including ACCESS Paratransit (in King County), Everett Paratransit, the Transportation Assistance Program (TAP), Community Transit, King County Metro, Sound Transit and Washington State Ferries.
TAP provides safe and reliable transportation for older adults and people with disabilities who live outside the DART service area. TAP’s wheelchair accessible vehicles connect people to services, health care, senior centers, shopping, recreation and more.
TAP clients are picked up at their door and delivered to their destination or if needed, transferred to another transportation provider – DART, Everett Para Transit, or ACCESS.
If you have a disability that prevents you from driving and you live in an area that is not near a bus stop, Pay Your Pal may be able to help. Pay Your Pal provides mileage reimbursement for people who volunteer to drive you to work, school or medical appointments.
If accepted into the Pay Your Pal program, you are responsible for finding your volunteer drivers. Your volunteer drivers must be insured and licensed, and their vehicles must be safe and fully operational.
