Transportation to the Expo: Ride DART Rail
Our strongest suggestion for persons living in Dallas
is to take DART rail to the Expo. There is a DART station
next to the Hyatt (Union Station), and to get from the station
to the Hyatt you only need to take a brief walk through a connecting
Here's what you need to know to use DART to get to
the Expo. Note: you may want to print these instructions as well
as the maps/links and take them with you to help you remember answer
to questions such as what type of rail pass to purchase or what
station to exit.
- Find the DART rail station that is most convenient to you.
- When you arrive at your station, purchase your rail ticket
- Purchase a "Local Day Pass" ($2.50/cash only/exact change
suggested but not required) from a ticket vending machine,
good for round-trip service ("Single Ride" or "Rail Only" will
not allow enough time for your entire expo visit - do not
choose these options)
- You can purchase a "Reduced Local Day Pass" ($1)
for children between 5 and 14, high school students, seniors
65, disabled persons or Medicare card holders. Children
under 5 can ride free with an adult.
- Ride the rail to the Union Station located at
the Hyatt and enter the Hyatt through the marked tunnel
- Do this in reverse to get back to your car!

the experts and are more than happy to help!!!
