DART Launches Clean Team Initiative on Light Rail Trains

Dart Clean Team

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has launched a new pilot program that will substantially increase the agency’s commitment to riders to provide a safe and clean transit experience.

The DART Clean Team Initiative will utilize on-board contract cleaning personnel from United Community of Faith 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.

Each weekday night, DART light rail vehicles currently receive a complete cleaning between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., while the vehicles are at the rail yards. This includes sweeping, mopping and a complete wipe-down with an EPA approved cleaning agent.

DART light rail vehicles also receive a thorough cleaning at the eight terminus stations throughout the day with a focus on high touch areas. High touch surface areas are cleaned including handrails, door buttons, grab rails and hanging straps. Red and Blue Line trains are cleaned every 60 minutes. Orange and Green Line trains are cleaned every 90 minutes.

Through the new Clean Team Initiative pilot program, 24 additional contract cleaners will board light rail vehicles across the DART network on all four light rail lines throughout the day. Two shifts will operate Monday-Friday, between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.


If you see a cleanliness concern with any DART vehicle or facility, please contact the DART Customer Information Center at 214-979-1111, or through the DART GoPass App.
