As of Monday, June 1, the Polk County Board of Supervisors has enacted a curfew for 9 p.m. which will continue indefinitely. This curfew does not pertain to people needing to travel for work. DART knows many people rely on our service to get to and from work each day. This is why, at this time, we will not end service early for this curfew, but will instead continue to run the reduced service schedules we have been running for several months. Riders can find a full list of our routes and the type of service running on each here.
Local and Express Route detours could be implemented on an as needed basis as demonstrations and large public gatherings continue across the metro. If detours are expected to last longer than 30 minutes, DART will update this page with that information.
We highly recommend that riders in the downtown area needing to access Local Routes 1 or 4 board the bus either at DART Central Station, or at stops located around 6th or 7th. If you need help locating where you should board your bus, please call DART Customer Service at 515-283-8100 option 0.
