Try Parking It: Updates to DART and Lime Pricing Make it Easier

Can you ever recall a time when you saw a 95% discount on anything? If you meet certain requirements, not only will you receive a 95% discount off of Lime pedal bike rides, but you’ll also receive 50% off of Lime-S electric scooter rides. That’s correct, it’s no typo. Scooters are a thing now and you can get significant discounts on Lime rides. Backing their belief in “providing mobility for all”, Lime provides affordable transportation options for those who qualify but they also support a text-to-unlock feature that removes the barrier of having to own a smartphone or credit card.

Beginning August 18th, DART is introducing fare capping to make riding less expensive. All the smaller trips (e.g. grocery store, daycare, lunch, etc.) throughout the day can really add up but if you use the GoPass app or the GoPass Tap card, your total daily costs will never exceed $6. Monthly fare capping at $96 will soon follow on September 1st. Other changes include new AM and PM passes which means unlimited trips on all DART buses and rail modes. That equates to savings for people needing to travel more than two hours but who don’t need an entire Day Pass.

Looking for reduced DART fares—and who isn’t? Senior citizens are eligible for half price fares and annual passes, children ages 5-14, high school students with a valid DART Service Areas high school ID and non-paratransit certified persons with disabilities are also eligible for reduced fares. For more information, please visit DART’s fare information.

More opportunities are opening up every day so leave your car keys at home, step out of your lane and enjoy the adventure!
