GEORGETOWN, Del. — After its first week in operation, the newly launched Delaware Transit Corporation (DART) Flex Route service has been a success, the Sussex Countian reported.

Launched as an effort to better meet the community’s transportation needs, the new Flex service, which can deviate up to one mile off of its set route to pick up riders, operates as a hybrid between DART’s fixed-route buses and paratransit buses that provide door-to-door transportation to qualified riders through reservations made 24 hours in advance.

While the Flex Routes are currently available in only a few areas, DART may consider adding more in the future. For the full story, click here.
