In response to the increased spread of the COVID-19 virus across the country, and in alignment with the executive order signed by President Biden, and the order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will continue to require a CDC approved face mask be worn over the mouth and nose by passengers and operators at all times while on DART vehicles or properties.

Refusing to wear a mask, unless exempted or excluded under the CDC guidelines, is a violation of federal law and failure to comply will result in denial of boarding or removal, and passengers may be subject to federal penalties.

On January 21, 2021, President Biden issued an Executive Order, Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel, requiring masks to be worn in airports, on commercial aircraft, and in various modes of surface transportation. On January 29, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), issued an order requiring the wearing of masks by travelers when boarding, disembarking and for the duration of travel.

If a DART passenger is concerned with someone not wearing a mask, they can contact DART Customer Service at (214) 979-1111, or use the "DART Say Something" app, which can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play for free.
