Call For Interview at DART
Welcome to the website of the Dar Rapid Transit (DART) Agency in order to avail oneself with all important information pertaining to the implementation of the DART project. The DART project was first conceptualized in 2002 by the Dar es Salaam City Council and was integrated in the transportation system of the city in April 2003 in order to tackle the transport challenges that had already affected the residents and all who used to come to the city for one reason or another. One of the challenges that surfaced and continued to slow down the pace of development in social and economic aspects were the escalation of traffic jams, poor conditions of private commuter buses and the infrastructure that did not allow all road users to enjoy their daily mobility.
In order to make the project sustainable, the government of Tanzania found it wise to establish an agency which would be mandated to manage the project under a ministry and this was the Prime Minister’s Office Regional Administration and Local Government. In the Tanzania’s fifth phase government, the DART project is managed under President’s Office Regional Administration and Local Government. The establishment of DART Agency through GN. 120 of May 25, 2007 under Executive Agency Act No. 30 of 1997 its launch on June 16, 2008 prepared the starting point of the DART project which was designed to be implemented in six phases. The implementation of the six phases are mainly divided into two categories, namely, infrastructure development and bus operations.
