9 of 10 would recommend DART

Posted on January 10, 2012

Nine out of 10 Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) customers said they would recommend the service to others, according to the results of the 2011 customer satisfaction survey.

The survey of more than 3,700 customers was conducted in September both in person and online. It has a margin of error of +/- 1.6%. The survey also reported an 87% general satisfaction compared to 89% in 2010.

Other key findings from the survey include:

  • 91% would recommend riding DART to others.
  • 92% found the information they needed on DART.org.
  • 90% found schedules easy to read.
  • 77% believe buses are on schedule.
  • 92% report the trains are on time.

Although 85% of customers said they feel safe on many parts of the system, the agency is exploring ways to improve their sense of security. In addition to modifying deployment plans to increase police presence, the agency is continuing to install closed-circuit cameras at its stations and is scheduled to complete the project in mid-2012.

DART Police are also increasing their coordination with service-area city police departments as well as federal law enforcement agencies. One particular effort with Dallas Police is aimed at reducing crime involving juveniles.
