As always, the best value for riding the bus is to purchase a Daily Pass. The cost of the Daily Pass is $2.10. The Daily Pass allows customers to ride any bus route in Sussex County all day long.

The DARTCard is a discounted stored value card (used just like cash) that can be purchased at DART First State sales outlets, or online, and is available in seven different denominations. For an even greater discount, the DARTCard can be used to purchase a Daily Pass on the bus! DARTCards cannot be re-charged, therefore, when the value runs out, a new card has to be purchased.
