Dallas is at the geographic center of North America and connected to the continent and the world by highway, rail and air. Within 48 hours of Dallas, over 35% of the U.S. population (by truck) and 98% of the U.S. population (by rail) can be reached.

DFW International Airport

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport provides non-stop access to 153 U.S. and 56 international cities and is a hub for American Airlines. In 2015, DFW International Airport served over 64 million passengers and more than 737,000 tons of cargo. It’s the U.S.’s fourth busiest airport and 10th busiest in the world.

Dallas Love Field Airport

Dallas Love Field flies more than 200 daily nonstop flights, serving 14 million passengers annually, and is the home to the corporate headquarters of Southwest Airlines. In October 2014 a new 20-gate terminal opened as flight restrictions were lifted to allow more nonstop destinations.

Highway Convergence

Dallas is a major interstate hub, with five interstate highways (I-20, I-30, I-35, I-635, and I-45) within the city limits, two major loop roads and 19 federal and state highways. Three major rail lines pass through Dallas: Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF), Kansas City Southern and Union Pacific. Four intermodal facilities operate in the region.

Light Rail Transit

There are 62 Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) light rail stations over 85 miles of tracks. An extension to DFW Airport opened in August 2014, and an extension to the University of North Texas at Dallas campus will open in December 2016. A second downtown Dallas line is in planning stages.
