Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is replacing nearly 34,000 fabric seat cushions and backs on its bus fleet with vinyl-covered ones.
The new vinyl seats are part of the agency’s continued customer-focused commitment to riders to provide a safe and clean transit experience. This includes the DART Clean Team Initiative that launched in November 2022, utilizing on-board contract cleaning personnel to remove trash and debris aboard DART light-rail vehicles as they operate throughout the DART network, supplementing the extensive cleaning protocols already in place.
DART’s light-rail vehicles will receive their new vinyl seats beginning in May. With a fleet of 163 vehicles and 15,000 seats, the agency expects to be completed in September.
