DART is partnering with public libraries to celebrate Read Across America Week! Use your library card to ride FREE on DART’s Local and Express routes, On Call services and DART On Demand* February 27 – March 5.

Just show your library card when you board any DART bus. Then settle in with a good book or enjoy DART's free WiFi to listen to an eAudiobook or read an eBook. 

Use the MyDART app trip planner to plan your route to work, shopping or to your local library!

Participating libraries include Altoona, Ankeny, Bondurant, Clive, Des Moines, Grimes, Johnston, Pleasant Hill, Urbandale and West Des Moines.

Don’t have a library card? Visit your local library. Public libraries will also be issuing library cards in the DART Central Station lobby throughout the week. Residency restrictions may apply. Several participating libraries will be in the DART Central Station lobby during Read and Ride week to facilitate library card sign ups:

  • Monday, February 28 - Urbandale Public Library, 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, March 1 - West Des Moines Library, 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

*If booking a DART On Demand trip using the DART On Demand app, please adjust your payment cash/token and show your card when you board.
