DART TOUR: Customers Get A Sneak Peak
Buses won’t leave the new DART Central Station until November 23rd, but Sunday, customers got a sneak peak at the services that will be offered.
Hundreds attended an open house hosted at the new Cherry Street location.
Tour guides were on hand to talk about new features that include an indoor waiting area, customer service center, and 24/7 security.
It was a $21 million dollar project that took 17 months to complete.
“This is not just about a new station, but about more public transit for greater Des Moines. This is really the beginning of a much better service for our area,” said Gunnar Olson, the public information officer for DART.
Bus passes will begin at the customer service desk on November 12.
When bus service begins at Dart Central Station on the 23rd, the old location on Walnut Street will be shut down.
