Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival: Know Before You Go

DART, St. Patrick's Day

The Dallas St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival is tomorrow, March 11, beginning at 11 a.m. This annual celebration attracts thousands to Greenville Avenue and the best way to get there is on DART. The Mockingbird and Lovers Lane stations put festival goers within easy walking distance of all the action.

Use GoPass℠, Buy in Advance, Activate Tickets the Day You Go
DART passes are available for purchase via ticket vending machines; however, the most convenient way to purchase is through the GoPass app. If you haven’t already done so, download app to your smartphone from either the App Store or Google Play store. Register your mobile ticketing account and set up your payment information.

You can purchase your transit pass in advance, but don’t activate it until the day you use it.

Roll onto the Low-Floor Center Cars
The center car of every DART Rail vehicle has a low-floor section that offers level boarding with the rail platform – perfect for festival-goers with strollers, wagons, wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility devices. DART’s new buses also have low-floor sections and are equipped with ramps that deploy for level boarding from the curb.

Park Free at a DART Station
Save time and gas while skipping the hassle and expense of trying to park near Greenville Avenue. Free parking is available at many DART transit centers or rail stations with parking lots. Find out where you can leave your car at DART.org/parking.

Take Advantage of Car-Sharing Services
Need help making the connection from your home to the nearest DART bus stop or rail station? DART is partnering with Uber and Lyft to get you safely to and from the festivities. You can access both on the GoPass app. Uber is offering $10 off the first two rides and Lyft is offering $5 off your first five. Click here for more information.
