The mask and hand sanitizer dispensers are in addition to DART's cleaning and safety protocols in response to the coronavirus, including removing vehicles from service that have been exposed to biohazard situations from passengers.

If an unhygienic surface needs attention, passengers can contact DART Customer Service at (214) 749-3333, or use the "DART Say Something" app, which can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play for free.
