How to Go from DFW to Downtown Dallas for a Few Dollars

August 22, 2014 at 12:56 PM | by | ()

Grab your luggage off the carrousel and head right into downtown the next time you arrive at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, as there’s now a public transportation option that will zip you right into the heart of the city—as long as the city you want to visit is Dallas rather than Ft. Worth.

Around five miles of rail have been added to the existing structure that makes up Dallas Area Rapid Transit—or DART to its friends. This addition makes it possible for arriving passengers to head right into town without the need for a taxi, buses, or a bunch of connections aboard different public transportation options.

Just in case the signage isn’t all up at the airport you’re going to need to hop aboard the Orange Line to head into Dallas. You can grab a ride by using the airport’s Skylink train thing and heading over to Terminal A. As far as fares are concerned things seem to be more than fair with no upcharge for passengers heading to or from the airport. A two-hour local pass is just $2.50, and if you want to ride all day it’ll just set you back $5—and it’s good until 3am the following day.

Oh—and as for Ft. Worth—they’re working on plans for an option from the airport to the city, but it looks like 2018 is the earliest that we’ll be writing about that.
