DART is making it easier for you to travel to the parade and festival with additional rail service and volunteer staff. Whether you’ve taken DART to the event before or this is your first time, remember these tips:

Ride the Blue, Orange or Red Line
Ride the BlueOrange or Red Line to Mockingbird Station, or the Orange or Red Line to Lovers Lane Station. If needed, you can transfer between rail lines in downtown Dallas.

Use GoPass
Use DART’s free GoPass app to buy your transit pass in advance, but don’t activate your pass until the day you go to the parade and festival. You can download the app to your smartphone from either the App Store or Google Play store. 

Roll onto the low-floor center cars 
The center car of every DART Rail vehicle has a low-floor section that offers level boarding with the rail platform – perfect for you if you bring a stroller, wagon, wheelchair, walker or another mobility device. DART’s newest buses also have low-floor sections and are equipped with ramps that deploy for level boarding from the curb. 

Park for free at a DART station 
Save time and gas while skipping the hassle and expense of trying to park near Greenville Avenue. Free parking is available at many DART transit centers or rail stations with parking lots. Find out where you can leave your car at DART.org/parking

Don’t forget about the St. Paddy's Dash Down Greenville 5K
