What is Flex Connect?

Flex Connect is a new on-demand service DART is testing that connects riders in the Flex Connect zone to DART buses. Beginning Monday, October 14, Flex Connect will replace Flex Route 73 in Urbandale and Windsor Heights.

With Flex Connect, riders in the zone can book an Uber, YellowCabCo. or a DART accessible vehicle to take them to and from one of three transfer points: Gloria Dei Park & Ride, Buccaneer Arena Park & Ride or Merle Hay Mall. From there, riders can connect to DART buses via routes 5, 14, 16, 50, 92 or 93.

Flex Connect will operate Monday – Friday, from 5:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

The best part? Flex Connect is FREE for the duration of the pilot program (October 14, 2019 through mid-October 2020)! Riders will pay regular fare when they connect to a DART route.
