Reissue fees are not refundable under any circumstances.
Unauthorized Use Of Transit Pass: Unauthorized use of a Transit Pass includes but is not limited to duplication or alteration of a pass or the use of a pass by any person other than the participating employee to whom it was issued.

DART retains the right to confiscate Transit Passes for unauthorized use and to pursue claims, demands, or lawsuits against, or seek prosecution of, any person for unauthorized use of a Transit Pass. DART agrees not to pursue any such claims, demands, or lawsuits against the employer for unauthorized use of a Transit Pass unless such unauthorized use results from the intentional acts, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the employer.
