Going to the State Fair of Texas: Make DART your First Ride
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) makes getting to the 2019 State Fair of Texas quick and easy. Enjoy your light-rail ride in air-conditioned comfort September 27 through October 20 without trying to find parking or battling traffic, and get dropped off at one of two gates.
All DART Rail and Trinity Railway Express (TRE) passengers can transfer easily to the Green Line. Just look for trains saying, "Fair Park," "Buckner" or "Lawnview."
To get to the Green Line:
Discounted tickets and GoPass® information
DART's GoPass app began selling tickets on September 10. At $2 off, you'll get an extra 50-cent savings on individual tickets, plus you can also pre-purchase your DART ride tickets. Both the State Fair and DART tickets are right there on your phone, set to be activated whenever you're ready.
DART fares are also available at any rail station from a ticket vending machine and from your bus operator. Day Passes are valid for unlimited rides on the date of purchase through 3:00 a.m. the following day. When purchasing a Day Pass on a bus, exact cash or change is required. Fareboxes accept bills and coins, including $1 coins. Bus operators cannot provide change.
Purchase a Local Day Pass for $6, good for DART Rail, local buses and riding the TRE from CentrePort Station. Tarrant and Denton County customers need a Regional Day Pass for $12.
