By Car : Mesquite is located just 20 mins (on a good travel day) east of downtown Dallas and can be accessed by I-635, I-30, or U.S. Hwy 80.
By Air : Dallas Love Field Airport is 35 mins from Mesquite and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is about 45 minutes from Mesquite. For private plane owners, Mesquite Municipal Airport is available.
Mesquite itself DOES NOT have a public transport system (they elected not to). You really need a car to be able to get about however there are several shuttle services available to transport visitors from the airport to Mesquite facilities, as well as, taxi service, and rental car companies. You never see taxi ranks so you will need to call for one.
