Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has expanded its contactless payment on all bus, light rail and Dallas Streetcar vehicles. 

The system enables riders to pay for their DART transit fare with a contactless credit, debit card, or a payment-enabled mobile phone or wearable device, according to a DART news release.

Contactless payment gives riders a new touch-free option for paying their fare, along with the GoPass® mobile app and GoPass® Tap card. 

The new system is built on Vix Pulse, a multimodal, multi-operator solution that unifies account-based ticketing and mobile and contactless payments into a secure, easy-to-operate and managed platform, the release said.

DART riders can hold their contactless payment card or payment-enabled mobile device to any DART GoPass Tap card reader located on the platforms at rail stations, onboard DART buses and on Dallas Streetcar vehicles.
