Dallas-Fort Worth may seem like it’s all highways and overpasses, but the Dallas Area Rapid Transit—or DART—makes it easy to get around town.
The 14-mile Orange Line runs parallel with the Green Line through Downtown Dallas before turning northwest, making its way through Las Colinas and ending up at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal A. This expansion, which opens on Aug. 18, not only makes global travel easier and more convenient for locals and visitors, but was also completed four months ahead of schedule. More time for you to take a vacation, perhaps?
D-Link: Free to Roam
Did you know there’s a shuttle service that connects major tourist attractions, dining destinations and employment centers in the downtown area—and that it’s free? It’s called D-Link, and it gives riders a way to explore Dallas without worrying about parking or even figuring out DART fares and passes. Just hop on at any of the convenient stops and be on your way to the American Airlines Center, Klyde Warren Park, Perot Museum, Victory Park, Main Street District, The Sixth Floor Museum, Dallas Arts District, Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, Bishop Arts District and more. After 6 pm, the route extends to include the entertainment district around Gilley’s Dallas and South Side on Lamar. Riding the circulator D-Link route is a great way to explore the city, letting you take in all the sights before deciding on where you’d like to go.
