Ride DART to "Big Tex and the City"
Every Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 30 to Oct. 22, the DART State Fair Shuttle takes you directly from Pearl Station in downtown Dallas to the front door of the country's biggest state fair. Plus, you get a coupon for $2 off fair admission just for riding the shuttle.
DART's regular Annual, Monthly and Reduced Passes are not valid for the State Fair Shuttle. Shuttle-only service is available for $2 -- exact fare only, cash only. Shuttle service is free for children age 2 and under.
Early shuttle service for State Fair 5K
On Saturday, Sept. 30, the DART State Fair Shuttle takes off early at 7 a.m. for the annual State Fair 5K Run & Big Tex Mile. The Big Tex Mile starts at 8:30 a.m., the 5K at 8:45 a.m.
Big Tex Express
Also on Saturdays and Sundays, motorists can ride the free "Big Tex Express" train between auxiliary parking at the fairgrounds to a gate near the Cotton Bowl. The State Fair of Texas offers acres of lighted and secured parking off Haskell west of Dolphin Road -- easily accessible from I-30. Parking is $10. The service operates continuously from 10 a.m. to midnight on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.
