To help people get a leg up on traffic and avoid parking hassles for the 2016 State Fair of Texas, Denton County Transportation Authority will operate expanded A-train service every Saturday during the fair so riders can have more options and later schedules to choose from for their trip planning needs.

To get to the fair with the DCTA, purchase a Regional Pass, hop on the A-train and connect with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Green Line at the Trinity Mills Station to go all the way to the Fair Park gate. A regional pass is $10 for adults, and there are reduced passes available for seniors 65 and over, people with disabilities, Medicare cardholders and students ages 5 through 18.

DCTA has expanded A-train service and added extra trains on Friday nights and all day Saturday to help residents get there and back without a problem. The A-train does not meet every DART Green Line train, so plan accordingly.

Fairgoers are encouraged to send photos to the #DCTAFairFun photo contest for a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card.
