the city of urbandale iowa welcomes you

Urbandale is uniquely set around two merged Interstate highways that curve around the outskirts of busy Des Moines, Iowa, located in the heart of the Midwest. Both Interstates stretch completely across the country from east to west (I-80), and span the U.S. from northern Minnesota all the way to the southern tip of Texas (I-35). This point of convergence – north, south, east and west – provides quick access to business markets and jobs, as well as to a host of leisure activities. State Highway 6 runs along the south edge of the Urbandale city limits. Click here to download a map of Urbandale. Click here to take a look at Urbandale using Virtual Earth!

Urbandale is served by the Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART).  Local and state leaders created the Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority, or DART, out of the Des Moines Metropolitan Transit Authority, or MTA, in 2006.  The move enabled the agency to begin evolving into a more regional transit system.  DART is already the largest public transit agency in Iowa, serving 19 cities in and around Polk County to varying degrees.  For route information, visit www.ridedart.com.
