DART and the State Fair of Texas are making it easier than ever to buy your general admission fair tickets. In addition to buying your transit passes, this year you can also use DART’s GoPass app for Android and iOS smartphones to buy your State Fair of Texas general admission tickets.
How do I buy tickets?
If you don’t already have GoPass, download it from your app store. Follow the instructions setting up your account and visit gopass.biz for any questions or for more information about how it works.
• Existing GoPass users, please make sure your app is updated to the latest version.
Open up the app and select Buy Tickets. Select Special Events (it should be at the bottom of the list). Finally, select State Fair and you’ll reach the screen to select how many and what types of State Fair and transit tickets you’d like to buy.
This page (right) gives you the chance to buy as many Adult and Child/Senior State Fair tickets and Adult and Child/Senior transit passes as you need. You can buy all of your family’s State Fair and transit tickets with one smartphone.
How do I use the tickets?
On the day you plan on going to the State Fair, activate your State Fair tickets by sliding the activate bar to the right. Your ticket should turn from grey to green and be pulsing. To expedite admittance into the State Fair of Texas, please have GoPass open on your smartphone and your general admission ticket(s) ready to be scanned when approaching the gate. The ticket-taker will scan each State Fair of Texas general admission ticket admitting you to a day full of fried food and fun.
A State Fair ticket is valid to be scanned only once. Those that want to leave and re-enter the State Fair need to get a hand-stamp by a State Fair ticket-taker.
Important Note: ACTIVATED GoPass State Fair tickets are only valid for the day they are activated. Please do not activate your ticket until the day plan to attend the State Fair of Texas.
