Feeling lucky? You should because St. Patrick’s is almost here! The 2023 Dallas Mavs St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival is on Saturday, March 11. It’s the one day when every North Texan is Irish, and DART offers a safe alternative to driving not to mention a convenient way to all the festivities. You’ll skip the traffic headaches and save a pot of gold by riding DART to the parade. You might even say DART’s your lucky ride!

Buying your DART pass is simpler than ever. Skip the shenanigans by purchasing with the GoPass® app, GoPass® Tap card or any contactless card or device. DART offers four great contactless ways to ride and save this St. Paddy’s:

1. GoPass app: Don’t forget to turn your ticket green (that is, activate it prior to boarding) for good luck.

2. GoPass Tap: Tap your card to a reader on a DART Rail platform or bus before you board, and your fare is deducted automatically. Need a card? Pick one up at a participating retailer and enjoy tap-and-ride convenience. You automatically get the best fare every time you ride!

3. Credit or debit card: Simply tap your contactless credit or debit card to a reader on a DART Rail platform or bus prior to boarding, and you’re ready to ride!

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 to buy your pass.

Notice a pattern? The key is to tap *before* you board a bus or train. Just tap, pay, and go – it’s that easy! For a complete list of DART fare options, visit our fares page.

Keep in mind that more than 100,000 people attend the parade each year, and they arrive early to claim the best viewing spots. In other words: Come early, take advantage of the extra service that day and, of course, wear green! It all adds up to a smooth St. Patrick’s celebration.
