ARLINGTON – Want a piece of Super Bowl memorabilia but can’t afford to go to the game? A $30 transit pass is now for sale, and it features a sharp – dare we say, collectible – rendition of the Super Bowl XLV logo. The bearer gets unlimited train and bus rides throughout Dallas-Fort Worth Feb. 3-6.
“We have over 240 events, and the rail will get you to 75 percent of them,” said Michael Morris, transportation director for the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
But organizers predict many people will buy transit passes as a souvenir. The first 5,000 are for sale through the Super Bowl Host Committee’s official ticket provider. But more could be printed closer to game time, Morris said, and sold at transit hubs such as Fort Worth’s Intermodal Transportation Center at 1001 Jones St.
All the region’s public transit providers will accept the pass, including the Trinity Railway Express, Fort Worth Transporatation Authority, Dallas Area Rapid Transit and Denton County Transportation Authority.
