    Trolley

    The Longhorn Trolley

    This can be a fun way to get between Fort Worth's tourist areas depending on what your plans are. They run between Downtown Fort Worth (where Sundance Square is located), the Stockyards, and the Cultural District. This may be especially useful if you do not have car or do not feel like driving. The trolley runs on a fairly frequent schedule. A one-way pass is $2.00 while a day pass is $5.00--as of 2006.

    DFW Airport

    by sswagner Written Jul 30, 2005

    Plane at DFW

    DFW is one of the largest and busiest airports in the nation. It is also a gateway to exploring Fort Worth. There are nonstop flights to cities throughout the country and the world. If there is not a direct flight, chances are an easy connection is available to get here. The airport is spread out in 5 terminals, all of which are connected by an efficient train.

    The downside to this metro area is the public transportation. If you are coming from someplace like Europe or even the big cities in the East, you will be wondering, "What public transportation?". The two main choices will either be to get a taxi (expensive) or to rent a car, which I would recommend for seeing this area. Those who visit the DFW area often tour all over the region, which includes Dallas, Ft. Worth, Arlington, and other cities. You really need a car to get from one place to another. There is a large rental car facility here, which is accessible from the terminals by a shuttle bus.

    The Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC) is the hub of Fort Worth's transit system. In addition to being the train station where both Amtrak and Commuter trains embark, it is also where all buses originate their routes, and the easiest spot to catch any bus, or the tourist trolley (only runs Saturdays)

    Truck, horse and motorcycle

    As we were going back to our car, we saw this rider coming up the street - not part of the cattle drive. He or she may have been acting in some law enforcement capacity.

    The bike rider and the horseman were interacting in front of Rita's.. Unfortunately it took so long to get my digital camera unlimbered that I did not get a good picture.

    Driving There

    by keeweechic Updated Apr 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By Car : Fort Worth is 33m/59km from downtown Dallas.
    If you are driving, take 30 West to Ft. Worth, then 35W North and exit 54B. Travel 7 lights to N. Main Street and turn left.

    The Stockyards are located on the north side of Fort Worth. From downtown, take Main Street north for about 2 miles to Exchange Street. From I-35, take 28th Street west about a mile, then turn left on Main Street to Exchange. We found parking on Exchange St easily and it was free.

  • Driving Tips

    by 1Nomad Written Jan 7, 2003

    If your flying into DFW Airport, you'll definitely want to rent a car. Pick a car suitable to your needs. Compacts will start around $25 US a day and mid size cars around $40. It's the only way to get around if you want to see a lot. Everything here in this area and in Dallas is spreeeeaaaaad out. It's not New York where everything is stacked. You can take cabs if your just going to be here for the day and want to spend all day at Grapevine Mills Mall or Outdoor World. But if your going to be a while, get a car! If your here for business to the downtown area of Fort Worth, you can catch a ride on the train (I can't recall the name), bus or cab. If you have traveled here by car, then by all means, us it. Fort Worth and Dallas are way behind the public transportation curve, but they are trying. Just be aware that when you do get a car, you'll be in plenty of traffic. That's because we are behind the curve. As for rental agencies, they are all here and all over. Not just at the airport.

    DFW International

    at DFW

    DFW International Airport. 3rd busiest airport in the world...or at least I heard that it is. Nonetheless, it's a huge airport serving domestic and international locations. It's a good and a bad place: it's good when I'm there and leaving for a new destination...it's bad when I'm comin' back. It costs $1 to ride from downtown Ft. Worth to the airport or vice-versa on the Trinity Railway Express.
