REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- DART First State, along with beach area officials and transportation partners, kicked off the start of the 2015 resort transit bus service Thursday at the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk. 

According to DART, its resort transit service helps alleviate traffic congestion on DE Route 1 and local roads, reduces parking issues, and provides a low-cost transportation solution for easier access around the beach areas.

Officials said DART's resort transit operates seven bus routes, seven days a week from approximately 7 a.m. to 1 a.m., serving Rehoboth Beach and the boardwalk, Lewes, Long Neck, Georgetown, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, South Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, and Ocean City, Md. All buses are air-conditioned, ADA accessible and equipped with bike racks, according to officials. The seasonal bus service operates through Sept. 13.

Officials encourage visitors and residents to use DART's Park & Ride lot, located off of DE Route 1 on Shuttle Road, just north of the entrance to Rehoboth Avenue. The parking rate is $8 per day and up to four occupants of the vehicle receive a free unlimited ride daily bus pass. For customers not using the Park & Ride, boarding at any of the marked bus stops, the cost is a $1.75 per trip or $3.70 for a daily pass.

DART's Route 305, Beach Connection, begins service on Friday, May 22, providing bus service from Wilmington to Rehoboth Beach on Friday nights, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays through Sept. 7. Route 305 stops include Wilmington Train Station, Christiana Mall, Smyrna Rest Stop, Scarborough Park & Ride lot in Dover, Super Wal-Mart in Milford, and the Rehoboth Park & Ride.

The Beach Connection is a motor coach that offers 45 seats, 2two wheelchair positions, along with under coach storage compartments for beach gear and luggage. The one-way cash fares are $11.50 from Wilmington and $6.90 from Dover. Riders are encouraged to buy a 4/5-Zone pass for $19.20, which can also be used on all the Resort Transit routes, once at the Park & Ride.

The Delaware Transit Corporation, a subsidiary of the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), operates DART First State. For information on fixed route bus services statewide, call 1-800-652-DART or visit www.DartFirstState.com.
