Express Route schedule changes
DART collected feedback from riders earlier this year to help develop new schedules for all Express Routes. These new schedules maintain popular trip times and align schedules to run at times that align better with working hours. Trips with very low ridership on these routes were discontinued. To view the new schedules, click on the route names listed below.
- Express Route 92 – Hickman
- Express Route 93 – NW 86th
- Express Route 94 – Westown
- Express Route 95 – Vista
- Express Route 96 – EP True
- Express Route 98 – Ankeny
- Express Route 99 - Altoona
Local Route 16 – Douglas Ave:
This route was realigned in downtown Des Moines due to a recent road construction project to make the long-term detour on the route permanent. Click here to view the new map and schedule.
Local Route 17 – Hubbell Ave/Altoona:
This route will travel from the Outlets of Des Moines to the entrance of Adventureland on select trips this summer to allow their employees to travel to and from the amusement park. Click here to view the new schedule.
This shuttle will continue to travel on 15-minute frequency on weekdays and Saturdays as part of this service change. As a reminder, the D-Line is currently operating between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturdays to transport riders to and from the Downtown Farmers’ Market.
DART adds select trips on certain Local Routes in the morning or afternoon during the school year. These trips transport DMPS students and staff to school and back. During summer break, DART removes this service from schedules, adding it back to service in August.
