DASH brings back fare collection and front door boarding

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.

DASH has made enhancements to its DASHbus app, which allows passengers to recharge their their bus fare on their phones. The app is available on Google Play and at the Apple Store.
