You’ll need $2 per trip and a face mask if you want to take the DASH bus now.
For the first time in more than a year, today (Monday, March 15), DASH brought back collecting fares and front door boarding,
“This policy change brings us closer to resuming a ‘new normal’ of transit service while continuing to prioritize the safety of our employees, riders and community,” said Josh Baker, DASH CEO/General Manager.
In response to the pandemic, DASH discouraged city residents against traveling from home, suspended fare collection, moved to rear-door boarding and added face mask requirements. The King Street Trolley has been completely suspended since last March and will stay shut down until further notice.
