The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce Joins DART for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
The Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce (CDCC) joined DART for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate their membership with the CDCC.
Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC), Delaware’s public transportation provider, operates DART services statewide with over 540 buses, more than 70 bus routes, including its seasonal resort-area buses, as well as paratransit service for people with disabilities. In addition, DTC contracts with SEPTA for commuter train service between Delaware’s four train stations and Philadelphia. DTC provided 10.6 million passenger trips in fiscal year 2016. RideShare Delaware is another service offered by DART dedicated to aiding commuters with finding and using alternative modes of transportation.
DART’s Real-Time Transit information was recently released on DelDOT’s innovative mobile app, allowing customers to get up-to-date bus arrival times. Enhancements to the free mobile app allow customers to select a DART bus stop, see real-time bus arrival times, and view live updates as a bus icon travels along its designated route. The DelDOT mobile app is free and can be downloaded by searching “DelDOT” at the Google Play and Apple App stores, or accessed on the web via DelDOT’s interactive map found at www.deldot.gov . DART is continuing its excellence by opening a new fuel propane station in New Castle and working to increase their fleet of propane-powered paratransit buses as well as bringing on more electric buses in 2018.
