DART riders who participate in DART’s Discount GoPass® Tap card pilot program – or any other reduced-fare program that expires annually – need to renew their discount by January 31, 2024.

Per the program guidelines, participants in the Discount GoPass Tap Card Program must annually provide documentation that shows they still participate in one of the qualifying assistance programs* to keep your reduced fares.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not renew your Discount GoPass Tap card by Jan. 31, 2024, your reduced fares will expire and any taps with your Discount GoPass Tap card will be charged at the full-price adult fare beginning Feb. 1, 2024.
