By Bus

It's possible to get to Dallas, Fort Worth, or suburbs including Carrollton, Garland, Irving, Lewisville, and Richardson via Greyhound. The bus company's major area stops are the Intermodal Transporation Center in Fort Worth and the station in the middle of Downtown Dallas at 205 S. Lamar St.

Once in either major city, local bus transportation is possible to most major destinations. Tarrant County's option is The T, which provides service in Fort Worth and suburban Richland Hills. From Downtown, passengers can take Route 7 to the Cultural District, the Fort Worth Zoo, and Texas Christian University. Route 15 heads north to the Stockyards and back.

Dallas visitors can ride a DART bus between major Dallas neighborhoods and the suburbs that are part of the DART system (Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Richardson, Rowlett, Plano, and University Park).

Both The T and DART require fares. If you have more than one trip planned, a day pass is an economical choice, and it allows for use of the TRE, the train that connects Dallas and Fort Worth, and the DART light rail.

If you're exploring Dallas's Uptown area, a fun, free option is the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority's trolley system. Trolleys travel from the edge of the Arts District up to West Village—about 4 mi total.
