In an effort to boost ridership, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is partnering with Uber to provided subsidized, shared rides to customers in six of the transit agencies zones, Dallas News reports.

The free and discounted rides will be provided to people living and working in the DART's service areas with limited transportation options. 

The transit agency signed a one-year contract with Uber that is projected to cost about $1.15 million. DART will provide about half the funding, with the rest coming from a $1.2 million Federal Transit Administration grant.
