DART announces service reductions because of COVID-19 and driver shortage


The Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority will temporarily reduce service on some of its routes beginning Wednesday because of a shortage of drivers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In a news release, the transit agency said the change is needed to adjust its service levels to match its available workforce. Local route 52 and express routes 92, 93, 95, 96, 98 and 99 will be affected by the change. Schedule tables showing the trips that will be eliminated from each route are available on buses, from DART customer service on the DART website. “DART is trying to keep buses running on all our routes at the scheduled times, but this is becoming difficult while several bus operators are temporarily out of work because of widespread COVID-19 cases in our community,” DART officials said in the release.
