    Dallas Transportation

    There are quite a number of taxi companies in Dallas and in and around the downtown are you will see quite a rainbow of them. The most predominant one would be the Yellow Cab but there seems to be no shortage in the downtown area or the airport. Anywhere else, you will probably need to phone ahead for one unless you are at a hotel.
