“I need to take the car keys away from Mom.” 

Since our beginning, we have worked with communities to provide transportation for all neighbors. To this day, top-notch customer service is our hallmark.


In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the DARTS LOOP routes have been revised. Read detailed updates here.

As COVID-19 restrictions are eased in the state, DARTS is increasing the number of riders allowed on the bus at one time. Respective of CDC guidelines, buses have designated seats which allow for proper distancing from other passengers. Drivers wear masks and gloves, and passengers are required to wear face coverings as well.. Call 651-455-1560 to schedule a pickup.

DARTS LOOPs are continuing to serve communities on their scheduled days. Out of concern for the health of riders, LOOP bus capacity is limited to one rider per trip. DARTS drivers will screen individual riders, transport them directly to their destination and arrange a pickup time.

If you are experiencing symptoms, follow Minnesota Department of Health guidelines. Call 651-455-1560 if you need non-emergency medical transportation options.

Thank you for your continued support.


Grocery Delivery

For some individuals, taking a trip to the store is not an option. So, DARTS now offers grocery shopping and delivery options. We can help you set up an online order for pick up. When the order is ready, a DARTS bus driver will pick up the groceries and immediately deliver them to your home.

Customers can use a credit card to pay for their groceries when the order is placed or by check when the groceries are delivered.
