DART is "Deep in the Heart of Texans"
With Texas pride this year's theme, take pleasure in riding the longest light rail system in North America to the 2014 State Fair of Texas and enjoy American Idol auditions, Texas Sports Legends, soccer history displays, top entertainers, football, Big Tex, a Cotton Bowl music fest and award winning fried foods. The State Fair of Texas - "Deep in the Heart of Texans" -- runs Sept. 26 through Oct. 19.
Day Pass and GoPass app
Purchase a Local Day Pass for $5, good for DART Rail, local 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.
This year you can also buy your State Fair of Texas general admission with the GoPass app. Just show your purchased fair ticket on GoPass℠ at the gates to get in. To make the deal sweeter, save $2 on every fair ticket by using GoPass. You do not have to buy a DART transit ticket in order to take advantage of the State Fair discount ticket. Details are available at DART.org/StateFair or by calling DART Customer Information at 214-979-1111.
Special games, special service
DART and the TRE will provide additional service to the Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic featuring Prairie View A & M and Grambling State universities on Saturday, Sept. 27, and the AT&T Red River Showdown game between Texas and Oklahoma on Saturday, Oct. 11. Details are available at DART.org/StateFairClassic and DART.org/RedRiverShowdown.
