The upshot: On certain days, there will be a lot of young people at the State Fair of Texas. Be aware of this as you plan your State Fair visit. High volumes of visitors of all ages are expected to attend the fair on Columbus Day.

Students, of course, receive special rates on the DART System. However, this does not necessarily apply to all students. Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Children under age 5 ride for free when accompanied by a fare-paying adult. The limit is two children per adult.
  • Children ages 5-14 qualify for Reduced Fare. For a Local Day Pass, that’s $3.
  • To get a Reduced fare, high school students must have a valid student ID from a school within the DART Service Area – or a valid, DART-issued student ID. If you don’t have one, visit org’ s high school student page for more info. High school students are eligible for Reduced fares seven days a week.

Enjoy your visit to the State Fair of Texas, and happy Columbus Day!
