“Happiness Is” riding DART to the Iowa State Fair Aug. 8-18.

Rather than the headache of fighting traffic and finding parking, fairgoers can park at any of DART’s three Park & Ride locations then ride in air-conditioned buses directly to the fair gate. DART buses will run from 8:30 a.m. to midnight each day of the fair.

Three Park & Ride locations are available, with free parking:

· State Capitol – Pennsylvania and Grand Avenues Parking Garage and State Capitol visitor parking lots. Picks up at East 12th Street and Grand Avenue. Picks ups at the bell on East 12th Street after 5:30 p.m. Drops off at Gate 10.

· Center Street – Enter Center Street Parking Garage from West 7th Avenue. Picks up at West 6th and Center Streets. Drops off at Gate 10.

· Southeast Polk – Picks up Southeast Polk school at NE 80th Avenue and Highway 163. Drops off at Gate 8.

An adult roundtrip fare costs $2, or $1 with an advance Iowa State Fair ticket. Discounts are also available for children, seniors and people with disabilities. Children five and younger ride for free. Fares are cash only, day of ride. One-way fares are available upon request.
