Student IDs, DART Access to Change

8/3/2018

The way students access DART buses is changing beginning in school year 2018-19. When students receive their school IDs this Fall, the badge will have a QR code embedded on it. The QR code will serve as the student’s “ticket” to ride DART. Students will be required to scan the QR code when boarding DART buses. Click on the headline to read more about the change, and the district’s partnership with DART.
