Take Mass Transit to the State Fair

DART makes traveling to the State Fair of Texas easy. Here are some helpful tips to make the journey as easy as possible.

Buy GoPass in advance and activate tickets the day of the event. Download DART’s free GoPass app to a smartphone from either the App Store or Google Play store. Register the mobile ticketing account and set up payment information. Purchase DART transit passes and/or State Fair of Texas admission tickets from the app. Fair admission tickets purchased through GoPass are discounted at $16 for general admission and $12 for child and/or senior tickets. Don’t activate DART passes or State Fair tickets until the day attending the Fair.

Park free at a DART station. Save time and gas, skip the hassle and expense of parking at Fair Park and take advantage of free parking available at many DART transit centers or rail stations with Park & Ride lots.
