Each bus stop and rail station in the DART System is labeled with a unique 5-digit identification number, called a Stop ID. The number is located on the sign.
You also can find a Stop ID number using the online Stop ID Finder
With Stop ID numbers, you can get faster results when using the DART Trip Planner or when calling 214-979-1111 to use the new and improved Customer Information Line. If you travel from the same stops regularly, keep a list of Stop ID numbers handy to make trip planning easier.
For example, you need to catch the Route 350 bus between the Collin College-Spring Creek Campus in Plano and Parker Road Station.
There are two bus stops just outside your neighborhood – one on either side of the street – so you’ll need the Stop ID number for both. Also, the bus stops at the transit center at Parker Road Station have a different Stop ID than the light rail platform.
Parker Road at Raton Lane traveling toward Parker Road Station - Stop ID 27438
Parker Road Station Transit Center - Stop ID 33313
