Ride DART to Older Americans and Information Health Fair

Senior Fair 1

DART Senior Citizen Annual Pass holders have everything they need to take DART to the Older Americans and Information Health Fair May 5. Held annually at Centennial Hall in Fair Park, this free event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and features free health screenings, entertainment and a wealth of helpful information.

For those who are not annual pass holders, reduced fares are available for senior citizens ages 65 or older (with a valid DART photo ID), non-paratransit certified persons with disabilities (with valid DART photo ID) and Medicare card holders. Reduced Local Day Passes are only $2.50 each. Everyone aged 15-64 pays regular fare and a Local Adult Day Pass is $5. Local Midday Passes (9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) are just $1.75 each.

If you do not have a DART Senior Citizen Photo ID card, you will be able to obtain one at the health fair. You must bring proof of age, such as a driver’s license, passport or other substantiating documentation. There is a $2 fee to cover the cost of the photo.

The Senior Photo ID cards also are available at the DART Store, located at DART headquarters at 1401 Pacific Ave. (Akard Station). The DART Store is open Monday through Friday, and photo IDs are made between 9-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. only.

The theme for this year’s fair is “Blaze a Trail.” Attendees are encouraged to save on parking and ride DART’s Green Line to Fair Park Station. For more information about the 22nd Annual Older Americans Information and Health Fair, visit DART.org/seniors.
