Schaumburg’s signature transit service has evolved over the years into one of the few community-operated bus services in Chicagoland that provides door-to-door access to any location in Schaumburg. Since its inception in 1979, DART has provided more than three million rides with approximately 70,000 rides expected through the end of this year. Dial-A-Ride Transportation (DART) is provided by the Village of Schaumburg and Pace’s Suburban Bus Division. A Pace bus will pick residents up and drop them off anywhere within the Village of Schaumburg. The bus will arrive within the 15-minute time frame and will wait for one minute.
