Application period is now closed.
DART will donate three retired RideShare vans to nonprofit organizations, community groups or government agencies within DART’s service area this fall. Applications are due November 30. The van donation program is an annual process that DART began in 2014.
“DART recognizes that there are unmet transit needs in our community. In our community we have organizations that invest in ideas and people in whom they believe. We hope that granting retired RideShare vanpool vehicles will help the mission of these organizations by providing better public transportation to the clients they support and believe in.” explains Steve Van Oort, DART Commission Chair.
Organizations must complete the application below and return to DART no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. Rules and requirements are outlined in the application.
Applications should be sent to:
Nick Peterson, Business Development Coordinator
Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority
620 Cherry Street
Des Moines, Iowa 50309
