Service runs Saturdays and Sundays
DART's got the easiest way to the Fair!
Every Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25 to Oct. 17, the DART State Fair Shuttle whisks you directly from Cityplace Station to the front door of the country's biggest state fair. Plus, you get a coupon for $2 off fair admission just by hopping aboard.
DART's regular Annual, Monthly and Reduced Passes are not valid for State Fair Shuttle service from Cityplace Station to Fair Park. Shuttle-only service available for $2 -- exact fare only, cash only.

The service operates continuously from 10 a.m. to midnight on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.
