Ring the bell when you want to get off the bus. Buttons/pull-cords for ringing the bell are located throughout each bus. When you ring the bell, your bus driver will stop at the very next bus stop, so be sure to ring the bell before your stop. If your bus driver doesn’t hear a bell for a particular stop, and no one is waiting at that bus stop, he/she will drive past it.

You can text your bus stop’s unique number (e.g.: “DART 31576”) to 41411 for a return text with information on when the next buses are expected to leave from your stop; Instructions for this are posted at each bus stop. Please remember, since all posted times are for when a bus leaves a particular stop, you should plan to be there a few minutes before then.
