2019's THEME: “DART To Your Destination, Using the DART Transit App”

DART's new Transit App has real-time bus information and DART Pass, the mobile fare payment option. With continuous improvement and growth of transit services statewide, DART wants to use the opportunity to inform and promote the advantages of using public transit. Students are asked to create a poster which illustrates how the app can be used while using public transit. Visit DartFirstState.com to get some ideas and view past contest entries.
