More than 23 million rides are provided annually by Iowa's transit systems. Public transit service is provided in every county in Iowa. Iowa transit systems rely on state and federal transit assistance to make rides available and affordable for Iowans. Local support such as tax revenue, fares, and donations provide a large share of agencies' operating budgets.

DART Partners with RAYGUN Stores

Tuesday, January 07, 2020

We have some exciting news to share! Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART) has partnered with RAYGUN, an Iowa based retail company known for its witty sayings, for the month of January to produce a limited edition “Iowa Needs Public Transportation” t-shirt and a portion of the proceeds will benefit IPTA.

Shirts are on sale January 1-31, 2020, at all Iowa RAYGUN locations (Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and Iowa City) and online here.  

Shirts are $23 each and discounts are available for bulk orders. If you’d like to place a bulk order, please contact [email protected].

DART is excited to take a statewide approach to their RAYGUN partnership and we hope your agency will share in promoting these shirts. Attached some images that you can use to promote the shirts (note the color of the actual shirt is a bit different than the shirts in the pictures), as well as some suggested social media posts. We’d love your help in getting the word out about these awesome shirts and RAYGUN’s support of our message.

If you have any questions, please contact Megan Grandgeorge at [email protected].
