DART Partners with City of Dallas to Deliver Senior Care Packages
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has partnered with the City of Dallas to assist in delivering care packages to senior residents who participate in the Dallas Park and Recreation Active Senior Adult Program (ASAP).
With 40 recreation centers in Dallas that offer senior programs, as well as three dedicated senior centers, the program is free for individuals 60 and over in the City of Dallas.
DART, working with MV Transportation and MyCity Transportation, will utilize six to eight vehicles to supply approximately 150 to 200 care packages per day, with 850 planned deliveries during the week of April 6 – 10.
DART is planning logistics for the delivery routes and providing drivers and vehicles. City of Dallas staff are responsible for delivering each of the care packages.
During the COVID-19 epidemic, DART continues to work closely with each of the 13 cities in its service area, as well as with numerous organizations, to leverage currently available assets and capabilities in support of North Texas.
