Getting Around in DallasEdit This
Dallas is at the convergence of about a dozen major highways so it's easy to access from all points of the compass. If you're a masochist you'll count rush-hour driving on Dallas' freeways among life's peak experiences. Traffic, however, is not nearly as bad as cities of comparable size.
Greyhound buses travel between Dallas and Austin (4-6 hours) Houston (5-6 hours) San Antonio (5-7 hours) and El Paso (11-14 hours). The Trinity Railway Express (TRE) travels between downtown Fort Smith and Dallas (1 hr). Union Station in Dallas' west end is the beacon for Amtrak trains. DART is the region's public transportation system with both buses and light-rail trains serving downtown Dallas and the outlying areas. See www.dart.org for train routes, stations and schedules. Cabs congregate at the airports, bus and train depots and hotels.
