DART Welcomes MegaFest Attendees

Welcome MegaFest attendees

Welcome to Dallas, MegaFest 2017 attendees!

MegaFest is a four-day festival of faith, film and family-oriented events held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center today through July 1. DART is the official transportation provider and can get attendees to the convention center, airports, hotels, restaurants and other area attractions.

Here are a few helpful travel tips for conference attendees:

1. Operation Hours

DART buses and trains operate daily from approximately 5 a.m. to midnight. DART Rail offers service every 8-15 minutes during rush hours, and 20 minutes during the midday and weekends, and 30 minutes late at night.

2. Ticket Fares

Need a ticket just for the day? You’ll want to purchase an “Adult Local Day Pass” from the free GoPass mobile app or a Ticket Vending Machine, the latter of which can be found at all DART Rail stations. This will cost you $5 for local trips.

Reduced fares ($2.50) are available for children ages 5-14 (children under 5 ride free when accompanied by an adult with a valid pass). Seniors and persons with disabilities also pay a reduced fare with a valid, DART-issued photo ID. To learn more about ticket fares and passes visit DART.org/fares.

3. Trip Planning

Need to get to the convention center? Meeting up with other conference attendees at a local venue? Use the online DART Trip Planner or Google Transit to create a blueprint for your adventure. You can also contact DART Customer Service at 214-979-1111 for assistance or view the DART Rail System Map online.
