What is the DSCTA?

It’s the Dallas Startup Community Transportation Association. It’s a loosely defined group of community resources whose members are treat the same way DART sees large employers – for the purpose of group discounts on annual local passes.


This pass will pay for itself quickly. Compared to the cost of operating a car, the price is a steal.


The Dallas startup culture is built around efficiency. Work during your commute on DART rail.


Riding DART means you can get from one side of downtown Dallas to the other in minutes. Any time.

Thanks to a partnership with Dallas Area Rapid Transportation, the official transportation provider of the Dallas Startup Community, the DSCTA was created to give its members a cost effective, convenient, and car-free transportation option.

DSCTA offers a prorated discount (25%) on the annual DART Local pass. That pass is regularly $800, but through the DSCTA and its members, the pass is just $600. The price is further reduced as the year progresses: February is $550, March is $500, and so on.

Benefits of an annual DART Local pass:

  • Emergency Ride Home (As an annual pass member, you are permitted one free ride from WORK to an emergency per month)
  • Up to 10% personal car insurance savings (When you use public transportation to or from work at least 4 times per week, you are eligible for a discount- be sure to mention this to your insurance company)
  • Relieve stress from traffic! WIFI IS COMING SOON!
