$10.00 DART Punch Tickets are sold by the Bus Drivers and at the DART Office.

DART Tokens are only sold to Agencies, and only at the DART Office. Please call in advance for staff to have tokens ready for pick up. Tokens come in sheets of 20. Agencies can either purchase a $15.00 sheet of tokens (made up of 10 $1 tokens and 10 $.0.50 tokens) or a $20 sheet of tokens (made up of 20 $1.00 tokens).

Niles DART is now accepting credit cards for Office Ticket and Token sales. There is a convenience fee of 3% (minimum of $2.00) that will be added to all Ticket and Token Sales. Rider fares cannot be paid by Credit Card at this time. 

Due to safety and other operational consideration (e.g., narrow streets, crowded parking lots, cul-de-sacs, etc.), curb-to-curb service may not be possible for every deviation. Drivers will bring riders as close to the door as possible; however, in some cases, passengers may need to board or exit as much as a block away from the location requested.
