Kick Off the Football Season with DART
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is encouraging football fans to ride the trains to fall football matchups instead of driving and parking, to cut down on pollution. For instance, customers can ride in comfort on DART’s Green Line to the annual Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic, October 6. To save time, pre-purchase a $4 DART local day pass, good for all DART rail and buses at the DART Store in downtown Dallas.
DART can also get you to the annual AT&T Red River Rivalry game between the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma, October 13, in the Cotton Bowl at Fair Park, safely and on time. Look for DART staff at key stations as early as four-and-a-half hours before game time to help in buying tickets and making connections.
Another good bet is riding DART to the biggest and brightest state fair in the land, the State Fair of Texas, running through October 21, which features a lantern festival, starlight parade and plenty of lights.
Online tools can help customers locate the nearest DART or TRE station or stop at the DART website, and game-day updates are available via Twitter (@dartmedia), email or a special subscription text service (text DARTTXOU to 41411). The services are offered free by DART, but users may incur charges from their wireless provider.
