Tigers and Panthers Can DART to Classic October 1
Fans of the Grambling State Tigers and Prairie View A&M Panthers can catch Dallas Area Rapid Transit's (DART) Green Line directly to Fair Park for the Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Cotton Bowl. It's double the action with a football game and a battle of the two legendary college bands at halftime.
Two stations serve Fair Park. Fair Park Station on Parry Avenue at the entrance to the fairgrounds and MLK, Jr., Station is located south of R.B. Cullum Boulevard and convenient to the Gate 6 entrance and the Cotton Bowl. Extra Green Line trains will be available approximately every 15 minutes on game day between Victory and Lawnview stations starting at 9:30 a.m.
Green Line trains going to the fair will say "Fair Park," "Buckner" or "Lawnview." Southbound Red, Blue and Orange line passengers transfer to the Green Line at Pearl/Arts District Station. Northbound Red and Blue line passengers transfer to the Green Line at Akard Station. Eastbound Orange Line passengers transfer to the Green Line at Bachman Station. Trinity Railway Express (TRE) passengers transfer to the Green Line at Victory Station.
Save time and purchase a $5 DART Local Day Pass good for all DART rail, buses and riding the TRE from CentrePort Station. Tarrant and Denton County customers need to purchase a Regional Day Pass for $10. Passes are available at ticket vending machines located at all DART and TRE stations and on the GoPass℠ app available for both Apple and Android. Additional information is at DART.org/StateFairClassic or DART Customer Information at 214-979-1111.
