Light rail now links downtown Dallas with the international airport

New light-rail service gets you to downtown Dallas from DFW airport in about 50 minutes

Light-rail service now connects Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the nation’s fourth busiest, with downtown Dallas.

The new service, which began Monday, is available on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit  (DART) Orange Line.

This quick (average time to downtown is 50 minutes), environmentally friendly link has been part of the plan since DART began operations in 1996. Now business and leisure travelers can make the 14-mile trip from the light-rail station outside Terminal A to Dallas for $2.50. A day pass is available for $5.

Think of all the money you’ll save on cab, car rental, or parking fees. And the traffic hassles you’ll avoid? Priceless.

Info:  Dallas Area Rapid Transit, (214) 979-1111.
