Hello,
I have been thinking about relocating to Fort Worth, TX for a couple of years now. I'm sending out resumes to companies and if any interviews come along and can hop the amtrak here and spend a couple of days here. But as I mentioned earlier I will need public transportation, if I get an offer and accept it than I will also need to know where to live (I'll come to that later).
How is the public transportation there? I do know it is better than her (Oklahoma). I want to know how far can you live in Fort Worth and still better able to take the bus, I don't know if I want to live in the downtown area; still doing research. My lease is up in June, so that will be my time table.
Anyone out there able to help me? Thank You in advance.

Everything you need to know about public transportation can be found on the bus website here:
The T | Fort Worth Transportation Authority | Fort Worth, TX - Home

As you can see it's limited to the city of Fort Worth and not available in any surrounding city.

And even then, the T routes will often leave you having to walk a mile or so unless you find an employer that is right on the bus line. Speaking as an employer, I will say I have had a lot of employees who rode the bus show up late because the bus was late, broke down, etc.

Dallas has a little better public transportation, but not by much. DART.org - Dallas Area Rapid Transit

actually I think DART is better than the T--covers larger area--has train and bus service--but again--if you don't work right on the line you will need to walk to the job site
