Transit riders in Detroit can use the new Dart mobile app to pay for transit passes. Dart is the unified payment system that enables customers to buy transit passes that can be used on Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation (SMART) fixed-route buses and the QLINE streetcar.

The Dart app, created by Passport, enables users to download the app, create an account with payment information, and then buy passes directly on their phones. Upon purchase, users have immediate access to an electronic pass. With the Dart app, users can select a 4-hour, 24-hour, 7-day, or 31-day pass at standard or reduced fare rates. Currently, the app features Dart passes, but will support individual agency passes in the future.
