Get a Free DCTA Ride to the 2018 Thin Line Festival Apr 09, 2018
DCTA will offer free rides for people attending the 2018 Thin Line Festival. As the official transportation sponsor, DCTA will host a free ride promotion in which festival goers can ride the A-train and Connect Bus system at no cost from Wednesday, April 18, through Saturday, April 21. As a reminder, parking is free at all DCTA A-train stations and the agency does not operate service on Sundays.
DCTA FREE RIDE PROMOTION 411
In order to take advantage of DCTA’s free ride promotion during the Thin Line Festival, event goers must do the following:
- Show their printed festival registration confirmation or a festival confirmation on their mobile phone or tablet to our bus and rail operators for their initial trip to the festival
- After people receive their general admission wristband or VIP badge at the event, they can show those to our bus and rail operators to get free rides for the remainder of the festival
The only services that qualify for DCTA’s free ride promotion are the A-train and Connect Bus system in Denton and Lewisville. The promotion is not valid for other DCTA services including Campus Shuttles, Highland Village Connect Shuttle and Community On-Demand, Collin County Transit, Frisco Demand-Response, Access and vanpool.
FESTIVAL TRIP PLANNING BASICS
Getting to the Thin Line Festival riding DCTA is convenient and easy. Check out the information below to see how you can get to the festival:
Denton County Resident
If you live in Denton County, ride DCTA’s A-train and transfer to Denton Connect Routes 7 or 8 to get to the festival at no additional cost when you show your festival general admission wristband or VIP badge to DCTA operators. If you’re a Denton resident, you can just ride Denton Connect Routes 7 or 8. As a reminder, don’t forget to check the last A-train and Connect Bus times when planning your festival trip. Event goers can also use DCTA’s Transit Tracker system to find and track their ride.
Non-Denton County Resident
If you live outside of Denton County and are taking the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) to transfer to DCTA, you will need to purchase a DART local system pass ($5) for that portion of your trip. When you transfer to DCTA, you can ride the rest of the way to the festival free using DCTA’s A-train and Denton Connect Bus Routes 7 or 8 when you show your festival general admission wristband or VIP badge to DCTA operators. When planning your trip, make sure to utilize DCTA’s Transit Tracker system and keep in mind the transfer times between DCTA and DART to ensure you make it back to your desired destination.
