Discover DART AM/PM Passes
If you are planning on riding DART, take the Green Line to either Fair Park Station, which drops you off right at the Main Gate of the fair, or the MLK, Jr. Station, which puts you a couple of blocks from Gate 6 near the Cotton Bowl.
And if you don’t leave for the fair until after noon, buy a PM pass, which is half the cost of a Day Pass! Learn more about DART’s fares at DART.org/fares
