How is it living in Dallas if you need to use public transportation?

April 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

If you are thinking about moving, Dallas is a very easy city to navigate in terms of public transportation. The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has a service membership of 13 cities: Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Plano, Richardson, Rowlett and University Park. With about 130 bus routes and 45 miles of light rail service, getting around is easy. If you work in the area, you can most likely find a way to get there without a car.

DART has a partnership with the Fort Worth Transportation Authority which allows commuting between the two cities. Currently, the Dallas train system is undergoing development that will more than double its size by 2014. Free parking is offered at most train stations and every one of them also offers bus service. Reaching destinations such as The Granville Arts Center, the Dallas Zoo and the Dallas Museum of Art are simple on the Dallas mass transit system.
