On Aug. 24 in Valley Square in Warrington, the Bucks County Transport Inc., along with local and state legislatures, cut the ribbon on the latest extension of the DART busing system, DART South. DART South comes as a much-needed addition to the public transportation landscape, offering a vital link between the Warrington area and Doylestown.
The project garnered praise from elected officials such as state Rep. Brian Munroe, who hailed the DART South as an example of what bipartisan community-centered “good government” can achieve.
The new route is poised to simplify travel for both locals and visitors, presenting a cost-effective alternative to driving. The fare is $1 and free for riders who are 65 and older.
Lou White, the chairman of the DART Bus Committee, said he is “excited” that this venture will serve as a DART system “for all Central Bucks residents and able to serve everyone from New Britain Township and County Line Road all the way through Doylestown Borough and down Route 611 to County Line Road.”
The DART South Bus system runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5:35 p.m.
According to the DART website, service runs along Route 611 (Easton Road) and Street Road, with stops at commercial and residential locations and connect with the Doylestown DART at Doylestown Point Shopping Center at Giant. From there, riders will be able to access the bus route into the Doylestown, Chalfont Borough, New Britain Borough, and New Britain Township.
