A variety of products and services are needed to ensure Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART) provides safe, dependable, and cost-effective public transportation.  DART strives to obtain the best value in terms of cost, quality, schedule, and safety from its business partners.

DART has partnered with Bonfire Interactive to create a new procurement portal that will allow you to access business opportunities and submit bids and proposals to DART digitally. Bonfire makes it easier to centralize procurement across the organization to realize the benefits of visibility and consistency. Vendors will be able to see the bid schedule with a calendar, brief project description, supporting documentation, required and optional attachments, required costs/pricing tables, and any questions that are required for the procurement.  Bonfire has easy to understand instructions and videos for the vendor to be able to register for free on Bonfire to view opportunities.

Should you have any questions, please contact DART’s Procurement Department at (515) 283-8100 or by email at dartprocurement@ridedart.com.  Thank you for your interest in doing business with DART

During any bidding process, in compliance with Federal Transportation Administration regulations, there is no contact with DART employees or Board of Commissioners. You can contact Bonfire for any registration and/or submission inquiries.
