If you’re trying to keep an eye on costs (and who isn’t?), why not give public transportation a try?

The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) website offers all kinds of helpful information, including an interactive DART trip planner, bus and rail schedules and maps, information about fares and more.

If you prefer, you can call DART’s Customer Information line at 214-979-1111. Just tell them where you need to go and when, and they’ll help you develop a customized trip plan.
