Big Tex is rested and ready to emcee another 24 days of corny dogs, rides and all those fun things only available at The State Fair of Texas®. The State Fair kicks off Sept. 27.
Avoid the lines at the ticket vending machine with DART's free GoPass® app. You can even buy your Fair admission through the app and save $2. There are a bunch of other cool features, too, like travels tools and events. Download GoPass from the App Store or Google Play.
A new option this year is the GoPass® Tap card. You purchase and add value on the card at hundreds of retail locations, such as participating 7-Eleven and Tom Thumb stores. Then simply "tap and go" at card readers located on rail platforms and on buses. DART will provide extra bus service during the course of the Fair.

Pay the right fare
A Local Day Pass is $6, and an AM/PM Pass is $3. You can purchase your DART passes in advance on the GoPass app, but DON'T ACTIVATE them until the day you go to the Fair. For detailed fare information, visit DART.org/fares.
Park and ride
You can park at any of DART's Park & Ride lots. To find the location closest to you, visit DART.org/parking or call DART Customer Service at 214-979-1111.
Get on the Green Line
Two stations, Fair Park and MLK, Jr., serve Fair Park – both on the Green Line.
If the station where you park isn't on the Green Line, no worries. DART's other three light rail lines have numerous points in and near downtown Dallas where you can transfer. And if you're riding the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) or DCTA A-train, transfers are a snap. Both connect directly to the Green Line.
