Public Transportation from Bedford, TX to Dallas.

by moala07

Hi,

I'm a new grad student in the DFW area. I'll be living in Bedford, TX but my school is near downtown, about 25 min drive away. I was wondering if anyone could help me find a way of making it from here (Bedford) to my school: Dallas Seminary, 3909 Swiss Ave, Dallas, TX by public transportation.

Thank you,
moala07

Re: Public Transportation from Bedford, TX to Dallas.

by mccalpin

Well, this is really difficult. I can't find evidence that either the "T" (Ft. Worth) or DART (Dallas) public transportation agencies serve Bedford.

The closest public transportation that I can find to Bedford (not knowing your exact location) is the TRE line that stops in Hurst, to the south of Bedford. The stop is at 3232 Bell Spur Rd, Hurst, TX 76053, which is to the south of Bedford. I encourage you to use a mapping website to see how far that is from your Bedford location.

The TRE (http://www.trinityrailwayexpress.org/) is a rail line that runs between Dallas and Ft. Worth. From your point of view, it runs to Union Station in Dallas, where it connects to the DART (www.dart.org) light rail line as well as to buses. The route planner is currently down at the DART website, but I would assume that you would need one or two buses to get to Swiss Avenue.

NOTE: the TRE does NOT run on Sunday.

After your investigations, you will discover that mass transit in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is geared primarily to getting people downtown and back, so it is normal that any other trip requires one or more changes. It is also very common that it is much faster to drive rather than to take public transit, assuming that public transit is even at all possible (many areas don't have it -in fact, Arlington, between Dallas and Ft. Worth, is the largest city in the U.S. without public transportation).

I assume that your Bedford address is not negotiable, but without a car, things will be difficult for you...

P.S. this trip you describe is 25 miles...so that it takes 25 minutes ONLY if you start on highway 183 (which you probably won't), the traffic on 183 and I-35 is moving at 60+ mph (not at rush hour), and the traffic from downtown Dallas to Swiss Avenue has no problems (also subject to rush hour and local traffic). In other words, this trip is 35 minutes minimum (i.e., at midnight), and more like an hour+ at morning rush hour...

Travel Tips for Dallas

Get some real Texas barbeque...

by realbarbie

Get some real Texas barbeque ... drink Shiner Bock beer ... go honky tonkin ... visit the museums ... go shopping ... marvel at the sky scrapers ... take in everything you can and enjoy some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. So many it's hard to put them all down, but here goes: First and foremost would be my wedding two years ago ... a perfect and magical day. Then there was the time we went bar hopping in a limo and ended up at the after-hours club called 121. On another trip we hit every joint in West End and have little memory of the ride home (though I do remember dancing with an Elvis impersonator at Dallas Alley!). Spending the day at the zoo with my family. Picking out wedding cakes with my brother-in-law. Playing in the yard with my niece. My sister's glorious wedding out near Little Elm. This list could go on an on.

Dallas has become a melting...

by gwpjr7

Dallas has become a melting pot over the last ten years or so. Seems like everyone is from somewhere else. Theres a whole lot of money out here. People like to flaunt their wealth and youll see more new cars than you can count. As far as customs are concerned, just be polite in all cases. Ex: If someone lets you change lanes in front of them, give a wave. I believe that everyone who skips this step is definately not from Texas and when a good deed goes unpaid (the wave gesture) in rush hour traffic during a 100 degree summer day........adds to the road rage just a tad.

Xtreme Bowling!

by msbrandysue

Who doesn't like to have a bit of fun while visiting? You need to plan an hour or two of bowling! Up in Lewisville, north of downtown, there is a fun center that has always exeeded my expectations. It is the local AMF Bowling Lanes.

One of the best parts? They have a full bar!!! You can see how nice (and big) the drinks are in my pictures! They also have food, arcade, pool tables, and a mini sports bar-type area.

When is the best time to come?? During Xtreme (Cosmic/Midnight) Bowling! They usually have it later (10pm+) on weekend nights. They turn down the lights, have neon pins, and jam some music. It is a blast with friends.

They have great, extended hours so you can catch a game or two at any hour :) If you do decide to go on a week night please call in advance because they do have leagues that will take up most lanes. Great family idea!

Monday/Tuesday 1pm-12am
Wednesday/Thursday 9am-12am
Friday/Saturday 9am-2am (yes, that's right 2am!)
Sunday 9am-11pm You can rent everything here, but feel free to bring you own. Of course, if their pro shop is open you could buy your own ball, shoes or bag there!

First Monday Trade Days in Canton

by btex

First Monday Trade Days is in Canton, Texas - about 50-60 miles east of Dallas. It's the oldest (since 1850) and biggest flea market in the world. At the market, you'll find antiques, collectibles, crafts, junk, art, greasy food, lots of shoppers and vendors. It happens on the weekend before the first Monday of every month...hence the name. The place is huge though, and it's almost impossible to see it all in one day. The town of Canton has several hotels for anybody looking to stay for more than one day. Most of the vendors seem to stay in campers and RVs on the grounds...I guess that alot of them drive from flea market to flea market...kinda like nomads. They seem to like it...many of the vendors are friendly, colorful characters who probably enjoy the community aspect of the market as much as anything. Shoppers seem to like it too...cuz there are lots of 'em.

Sam Moon Trading

by keeweechic

Sam Moon Trading is a place, if you can get there, should not be missed for great bargains. The company began as a wholesale business in 1984 and was know for its hot and trendy fashions and accessories. As popularity and interest grew they expanded to offer their prices to the retail trade. They carry fashion and upmarket leather handbags and wallets, costume jewellery, sterling silver, watches, hair accessories, scarves and hats in one shop while their shop next door (Sam Moon's Luggage & Gifts), carries brand name luggage, watches and gifts.

There is an extensive range of briefcases and all travel accessories as well as perfume and sunglasses. Their prices are unbelievable and of course this place is always packed especially at the weekend. Parking can be difficult.

Around these two stores are other very reasonably priced stores for trendy clothes, shoes, kids clothing, huge range of printed t'shirts and bedding, decor and further new stores opening.

Store hours : Mon - Sat 9.00a.m. - 6.30p.m. Closed Sundays.
