The State Fair of Texas® comes only once a year, so it’s important to do it right! Fortunately, DART makes traveling to Fair Park easy. Here are some helpful tips – your survival guide, if you will – to make your journey as hassle-free as possible.
Download DART’s free GoPass app to your smartphone from either the App Store or Google Play store.
Register your mobile ticketing account and set up your payment information.
Purchase your DART transit passes and/or State Fair of Texas admission tickets from the app. Fair admission tickets purchased through GoPass are discounted at $16 for general admission and $12 for child and/or senior tickets.
DON’T ACTIVATE your DART passes or State Fair tickets until the day you go to the Fair.
Find fare information at DART.org/fares.
College football is a huge attraction at the Fair. DART is especially busy on game days. Keep this year’s football schedule in mind when planning your trip:
DART’s normal hours of service are roughly 5 a.m. to midnight. However, during the Fair, DART offers more frequent and extended service, as well as special game-day service. Visit DART.org/statefair to view special DART Rail schedules.
The center car of every DART Rail vehicle is a low-floor section that offers level boarding with the rail platform – perfect for fairgoers with strollers, wagons, wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility devices.
DART’s new buses also have low-floor sections and are equipped with ramps that deploy for level boarding from the curb.
Save time and gas; skip the hassle and expense of parking at Fair Park; and take advantage of free parking available at many DART transit centers or rail stations with Park & Ride lots. Find out where you can leave your car at DART.org/parking.
