What is it?

DART is an on-demand, fare-free, curb-to-curb paratransit service for UVA students and employees, who, due to a disability, are not able to use University Transit Service (UTS), UVA's fixed-route transit system. DART operates whenever UTS academic routes are in service. The UTS service schedule can be found here.

The service was developed with the Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights and is operated by Yellow Cab of Charlottesville.
