This Saturday, The University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma clash at the Cotton Bowl in one of college football’s biggest rivalries. DART will be ready with additional service as thousands travel to the State Fair of Texas® to attend the game or be a part of the game day atmosphere.
Pay attention to special operating plans
DART will be operating special train and bus service on Texas-OU Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., including a Fair Park circulator loop; special trains that go from Parker Road to MLK, Jr. Station; and Orange Line service that ends at Bachman Station. Some passengers may need to transfer trains or board buses to complete their trip.
This year, the game begins at 11 a.m. Give yourself extra time for travel, be patient and look for DART staff in neon yellow vests who will be at key stations to direct and help you.
