Dart Transit has a reputation as America’s top carrier for independent contractors. You can contract with Dart with confidence, knowing that it is a company that operates with integrity and professionalism. The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and Carriers Edge identified carriers with the strongest over-all programs for drivers and owner operators, and ranked Dart among the best carriers for professional drivers. Dart topped the field in 2010 as the Best Fleet for Owner Operators, and won “Best Fleets to Drive For” in 2009, 2010 and again in 2011.
