DART has been named the American Public Transportation Association's (APTA) 2019 Innovation Award winner.

The Innovation Award is given to a public transit agency demonstrating innovative concepts in the provision of public transportation services. Entries this year had to show how their transit system demonstrated excellence within the three-year period of 2016-2018.

DART's winning entry was their GoPass app, the first public transit ticket-purchasing app in the nation that involved multiple agencies and different types of transportation by combining efforts between DART in Dallas County, the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (now Trinity Metro) in Tarrant County and the DCTA in Denton County.
