How to get around Dallas

Get to your next stop in no time.

Posted on Dec 13, 2018 By Diana Alvarez

From trains and buses to street cars and trolleys, Dallas gets you moving fast with your choice of easy transportation options. And with more than 5,000 hotel rooms with direct light rail access Downtown, getting around Dallas during your next meeting in the city has never been quicker!

 

Hop on the trolley

Take the McKinney Avenue Trolley, a Dallas staple since 1989, to lunch! The trolley offers free rides through West Village, Uptown, the Dallas Arts District and Klyde Warren Park, with the closest stop to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas about a half mile away. The restored vintage trolley cars run daily on a loop, with up to as many as four trolleys on the service line at any given time. Look for the "M-Line" maroon sign that's located at all the stops along the route, and track the trolley to see when its near.

 

Catch the D-Link  

Use D-Link to explore Dallas' arts, culture and dining during your down time. Check out the Dallas Arts District and much more across Downtown Dallas. Buses run every 15 minutes (10:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m.) seven days a week, and have a stop at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas. The Majestic Theatre, the flagship Neiman Marcus and the Dallas Farmers Market are just a few of the must-see spots along D-Link's route.

 

Call for a frog

E-Frogs is an eco-friendly golf cart service that takes you around seven Dallas neighborhoods in style. Each cart is wrapped in colorful and eye-catching décor, and easy spot on the streets. Services are offered all-year round; just text your departure and arrival addresses to (469) 432-4055 to request a ride.

 

Go with DART

The light rail system is comprised of four lines, all which have stops in Downtown Dallas. Use the GoPASS app to easily find departure times and the easiest route to your next destination. The Red and Blue lines both run through the Convention Center stop, making it a breeze to hop out of your meeting and onward to your next stop.
