    Trolley

    The Longhorn Trolley is a tourist bus which runs about every 20 mins and travels through the three major districts of Fort Worth.
    You can ride the trolley from the Fort Worth Zoo to the Stockyards with plenty of stops along the way. The trolley is inexpensive however nearly all of the museums and
    attractions in Fort Worth give out free gold trolley tokens which will allow you free travel.

    The Trolley runs from 11am to 6 pm between Sundance Square and the Cultural District and from 11 am to 11 pm between downtown and the Stockyards Historic District.

    The T

    Bus... the T

    Since the tourist locations within Fort Worth are fairly spread out, you may consider using public transportation to save costs, especially in terms of parking. The public bus systems within Fort Worth are known as the "T".

    Specific routes are available from Sundance Square to the Stockyards or the Cultural District, and there are special rates available for students and seniors.

    Fares are $1.50 one way as of September 2008, and there are monthly and fixed number of rides discounts.

    Grapevine Vintage Railroad

    Train pulling into the station
    4 more images

    For a slightly off-beat way to get to Ft. Worth, you might take the train from Grapevine. Unfortunately, the steam engine was broken when we were there, so they were using diesel and the ambience isn't quite the same.

    We didn't take the train because it would have gotten back too late for my daughter to pick up her son at school. Plus he really loves trains, so it wouldn't have been fair. We did see the train come into the station. The coaches are open-sided. They have other routes too including one to Trinity River.

    The "Cotton Belt Route" is approximately 21 miles, linking the historic communities of Grapevine, Colleyville, Smithfield and Fort Worth's historic Stockyards. The Cotton Belt Route arrived in Grapevine in 1888. Grapevine's depot served the community until 1972 when it was officially closed by the company. Passenger service along this route was discontinued about 1930.

    Walking

    by ATXtraveler Updated Oct 5, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fort Worth is not a very walkable city over all. There are distinct pockets around the city that lend themselves well to a good walk, but you will find that most of the time you will still need transportation between these locations. If you are going to enjoy Fort Worth on foot, I would recommend you stay in a hotel located on the Sundance Square area, or the Stockyards Historical District. You will then be able to walk that particular area, and take an inexpensive cab or public bus to the other. The third area that you can easily walk is the cultural district.

    Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)

    by ATXtraveler Written Oct 5, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jumbo Jets

    If you are arriving into Fort Worth by plane, the most convenient commercial airport is DFW. It is located about 15 miles from downtown Fort Worth, and about the same from the Stockyards Historical District. If you are flying on America's low cost carrier, Southwest, you will actually land at Dallas' Love Field, which is 40 miles away, so make sure you have adequate transportation to Fort Worth.

    DFW is served by many major air carriers, but is the primary hub for American Airlines. On this particular trip, we stopped into DFW to pick up VT member Maria250 arriving from Amsterdam on KLM.

    Just a quick reference guide:
    Terminal A + C = American Airlines Domestic
    Terminal B = American Eagle Regional Jets
    Terminal D = All international flights and AA Domestic
    Terminal E = All other carriers

    Paid Parking

    Man paying for parking

    These lots require you to put money into the appropriate slot in the automatic attendant.

    The website on the stockyards says:

    " There are numerous options for parking in the Stockyards National Historic District and most are at Stockyards Station. There is a $3.00 parking fee in lots around the Station with one "Free" lot on the Northeast end of the property [which is where we parked]. Lunch crowds also enjoy "Free" parking from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Monday - Friday. Street parking along East Exchange Avenue is always "Free". Special Event parking throughout the Historic District is $5.00 with the parking closest to the Event being at Stockyards Station."

    Getting around Ft. Worth

    by Dabs Written Oct 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our hotel was not well located for seeing the sights, most of what we did was in the Stockyards area and the Cultural district several miles away. Our hotel did have a free shuttle that we could have used on the weekends had Mark and Sarah not picked us up for dinner on Friday and VeronicaG and her husband not been kind enough to pick us up for sightseeing on Saturday. If you don't have a car, you will need to pick a more central hotel that has access to the T, Ft. Worth's bus system. The more central hotels I looked at all seemed a bit more expensive but perhaps that was because I was looking for a room for three.

    Been passing through this airport for years. It's a hub of all international travel. One thing to be aware of it is HUGE! So, if you gotten creative in scheduling your own connecting flights, make sure you link them to terminals that are close together or your going to be running! Running fast..lol! So just keep that in mind. What is nice about this airport is there are lots of wonderful places to eat and shop. Lots of good internet connections and has areas that are total separate from the hallways to help with noise if you happen to be conducting business over the phone.

    This is a neat addition that Fort Worth has brought to the historical downtown area. It's a new and "Free" way to get around the downtown area! It services the downtown area weekly and the Stockyards on weekends. The drivers were friendly and tried to share whatever knowledge they had on the area. Their stops at placed near or in front of the major hotels with the downtown area. Check with your hotels or go online and check it out.

    Hours are Monday - Sunday 10AM - 10PM, every 15 Minutes.

    Stops: Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel & Spa, Commerce Street, Hilton Fort Worth, Blackstone Courtyard/Embassy Suites, Sundance Square (Main & 3rd), Renaissance Worthington, Sunday Square (Houston & 5th), Park Central Hotel, and Omni Fort Worth.

    Getting from Dallas Love Field

    by Dabs Updated Oct 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I flew in from Chicago on Southwest Airlines which uses Dallas Love Field instead of the larger DFW International airport. Mark was kind enough to pick me up at the airport but if he had not been available there are a few shuttles, Super Shuttle which would have been about $50 for the 1st person, $10 more for additional people up to 7 from Dallas Love Field. Yellow Checker Shuttle was $45, didn't see any discount for multiple people.

    If you fly into DFW International Airport, it's closer to Ft. Worth and cheaper for shuttle transport, $31 on Super Shuttle and $19 for Yellow Checker.

    I flew into Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport with KLM as they seemed to fit with the short time frame of a weekend only. Generally I yet prefer American airlines over European airlines as I personally consider American airlines the most customer friendly, the most flexible, the most helpful, and the most competent in security measures. When I made it back from Texas to Germany earlier than planned, I was lucky to get some easy, quick, and kind help for switching my flight by the American airline. Again, great American customer service also on the ground. Pls take a look at American airlines' web page.

    This station services all types of transportation is available here. Everything is available except for a airplane. This is a lovely addition to the downtown area. The ITC offers access to commuter rail service on the Trinity Railway Express, regional and national Amtrak train service, taxi and bus & trolley service provided by the T. I wondered in here to check it out. Lots of wonderful travel information and there is a customer service desk in the center with people waiting to help you with your needs. Also along one of the walls in display cases is some of the local transportation history.

    Located at the corner of 9th and Jones Streets. Address is 1001 Jones Street, Fort Worth, 76102

    Sign facing the parking lot

    The first time we went to Fort Worth with my in-laws, we found this free parking lot for people who are going to patronize the local merchants. It is an alternative to the parking lots along the main street where you have to pay. It is at the end of the street where the big ARMOUR SWIFT sign is.

    The sign says

    "Stockyards Station
    "Free Parking
    "While Patronizing
    "Stockyards Stations Merchants
    "(excluding special events)
    "No Overnight Parking Towing Enforced"
