How to Validate/Use DCTA and DART Fare
To validate your DCTA local day pass prior to boarding, punch a hole in the paper pass to mark the month and day of travel and present validated fare to A-train conductor or fare inspector when asked for your ticket. DART’s GoPass℠ Tap card that is bundled with DCTA’s State Fair of Texas ticket combo deal is already validated and loaded with funds for local DART travel you can use all day ($6 value). Simply touch the GoPass℠ Tap card to the electronic reader when you board the DART Green Line. Your fare will be deducted automatically, and you'll be ready to ride!
PUT YOUR STATE FAIR FUN ON THE FAST TRACK WITH DCTA’S ONLINE PLANNING TOOLKIT
Take advantage of our online planning toolkit for detailed fair transit travel information, rider tips, State Fair info and more. Our online toolkit is your one-stop-shop for all your State Fair needs!
During the fair, we will operate regular A-train service and parking is free at all DCTA A-train stations. You can also ride our new GoZone on-demand rideshare service for fast, affordable rides to get to the A-train stations during your fair travel. Fair-goers can board the A-train at any of our five train stations (DDTC, MedPark, Highland Village/Lewisville Lake, Old Town and Hebron), transfer to the DART Green Line at Trinity Mills and have front door service to Fair Park at either the MLK or Fair Park station. As a reminder, the A-train does not meet every DART Green Line train.
Ride GoZone to catch our A-train to the Trinity Mills station and connect seamlessly to Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Green Line all the way to the fair gates. Since GoZone operates on Sundays, now you can #RideDCTA on Sunday for a fun day at the State Fair!
Remember to mask up when you #RideDCTA! Keeping our riders safe during COVID-19 is key and make sure check out our planning toolkit to see how to stay safe during State Fair travel.
