Transportation

AmeriCorps members receive a free Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light rail and bus passes for the year. The DART system is fairly extensive and reliable. Most AmeriCorps members would recommend bringing a personal vehicle to Dallas since it is very large. However, many AmeriCorps members have enjoyed an adventurous year without a car.
