Spring Break week is here again, and that means Fort Worth’s cultural attractions will be popular destinations for parents and kids looking to enjoy their time away from school.

Plan your visit

Spring Break is the most popular time of the year for parents and children to visit the Fort Worth Zoo. Many families are expected to visit on March 13, half-price day at the zoo.

Visitors can access the zoo using their normal route, but more vehicles than usual will be using this route to reach the zoo. Try approaching the zoo from the south by taking Berry Street to University Drive, which is often an easier route.

Take the Safari Express

Trinity Metro’s Safari Express bus will run direct service to and from the Fort Worth Zoo’s main entrance at Colonial Parkway March 10-17. The service originates at Bus Bay A, adjacent to the Trinity Railway Express platform, at the Intermodal Transportation Center, 1001 Jones St.

A round-trip day pass for the Safari Express is $5 for adults, $2.50 for children 5-19 and seniors 65 and older (with transit agency ID card), and free for children 4 and under.

The Safari Express will run every 30 minutes from 9:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. through March 17. The first shuttle leaves the ITC at 9:15 a.m. and the last weekday shuttle leaves the zoo at 6:15 pm. On Saturday and Sunday, the last bus will leave the zoo at 6:45 p.m.
