DART is a free service provided by USC Transportation to assist USC students, faculty and staff with mobility issues in getting around campus. Service is available at UPC during the Fall and Spring semesters only, between the hours of 8:30am–6:00pm, Monday–Friday.

Program Rules/Guidelines

  • DART program vehicles (golf carts) are not city-street legal, and therefore cannot leave campus. Service is not available to off-campus housing, off-campus parking structures, etc. We are granted an exception to cross Jefferson at Watt Way to get into the USC Village.
  • Anyone registering for DART service should be able to independently get in and out of a standard golf cart on their own. Additionally, due to liability concerns, drivers cannot provide assistance lifting or carrying any medical equipment, including crutches, wheelchairs, etc. A wheelchair-accessible golf cart is available upon request.
  • Due to high demand for the program, drivers cannot wait more than five (5) minutes past a scheduled pick-up time. If you are not ready at your assigned location/time, the driver may leave without you to continue their other assignments. If you no longer require a scheduled pickup, please call in advance to cancel the ride.
  • Service will be automatically terminated after five (5) consecutive missed pick-ups. If service is no longer needed, please contact the DART program at 740-3575 to be removed from the schedule.
