Hello! I was wondering if there was any form of public transit that leaves from around Aubrey/providence Village with a route to Dallas? I know of a Dart station in Plano about 40 min away. Wondering if there was anything closer. Thanks!

Plano is the furthest DART member city to the northeast. Cities beyond Plano have chosen not to participate.

I think there is something called the A Train that connects Denton to other public transit. DART won't help you because it runs along the east side of Plano . The closest west side line is much further south (Carrollton).

You can pick up the A-Train in Downtown Denton and it connects to DART in Carrolton which will take you all the way to Downtown Dallas

Only helps if you have buckets of time to do it.

I have a few neighbors that do the A-train to DART route downtown every day from the 380 neighborhoods. It's time consuming, but the. Again, so is the commute, might as well sit back and catch up on reading or something.

It has to be twice as long as driving.

That's gotta take 90 minutes. I'd slash my throat after a few days.
