Ride DART to the 2024 Dallas Mavs St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival on Saturday, March 16!

Start Your Parade Route with DART

North Texas celebrates St. Patrick’s with an annual parade down Greenville Avenue. More than 100,000 people attend the parade each year, and they arrive early to claim the best viewing spots. Let DART help you get there safely. Come early, take advantage of the extra service that day and, of course, wear green! It all adds up to a smooth ride.

This year, choose the safest, most convenient way to all the festivities: DART.

Celebrate early and often: DART has added capacity on Saturday, March 16 to meet demand on the day when every North Texan is Irish.
Go contactless:
 Skip the shenanigans by buying your pass with the GoPass® app, a GoPass® Tap card or any contactless card or device. See below for complete details.
Turn it green:

DART offers four great contactless ways to buy your pass quickly, safely, and conveniently:

  1. GoPass® app: Download the latest version of the app for FREE from the App Store or Google Play. In addition to buying passes, you can also use GoPass to plan trips and get next bus or train times. Just be sure to activate your pass before you board.
  2. GoPass® Tap: Available at hundreds of participating retailers such as 7-Eleven, Tom Thumb, and more, GoPass Tap is the reloadable transit card that automatically gives you the best fare every time you ride. Simply tap your card to a reader on a DART Rail platform or bus prior to boarding, and your fare is deducted automatically.
  3. Credit or debit card: To purchase your pass, tap your contactless credit or debit card to a reader on a DART Rail platform or bus prior to boarding. It’s that simple. Your contactless card is your ticket. Now you’re on your way to all the fun!
  4. Mobile device: Using your preferred mobile payment app – such as Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay -- tap your mobile device to a reader on a DART Rail platform or bus to buy your pass. Just tap – and go! Your digital wallet serves as your ticket, and each rider should have their own pass.

Giving you a cleaner, greener ride!

DART buses receive nightly cleanings, and light rail vehicles are cleaned at the eight terminus stations throughout the day with a focus on high-touch areas including handrails, door buttons, grab rails, and hanging straps.

Not to mention, riding DART is a greener choice for the environment. Instead of fighting traffic, you can fight pollution. That means cleaner air for everyone!
