I am fairly new to the Ft. Worth area and wondering how safe is catching a cab from Ft. Worth T&P station to the TCU campus for regular commute. We live in the Coppell area and plan on boarding the new TEXRail commuter rail from Grapevine to the T&P Station and then cabbing from the station to the campus at least a few times a week on a regular basis. I was told Lancaster Ave. is probably not the safest area in the city.

Any insights ?

On the west side of 35? Lancaster is not dangerous there. I wouldn't recommend walking to the east side after dark, necessarily, but the freeway functions as a prominent dividing line. Downtown FW has been very sanitized. I've never felt any sense of danger there.

I'd recommend uber or lyft. They tend to be faster and cheaper than cabs, in my experience.

I second the recommendations above. The part of Lancaster to stay away from is just east of where it crosses under I35W. (There are several homeless shelters in that area.)

Uber or Lyft will be a much cheaper option than taxis. You could also figure out how to ride the bus; I bet there would be a direct one to TCU from the ITC.

The one thing I don't like about T&P station is that it is a bit of a walk from the train platform to the parking lot. You can also get off one stop sooner at the Intermodel Transportation station. You get off the train and you are right next to the bus station where you can catch a bus or an Uber.

Both stations are safe. You might run into some homeless every now and then but they mostly keep to themselves.

I second Uber/Lyft vs cab.
May be a shuttle from downtown to TCU too.
Too far for byrd IMO.
You can try both T&P and the stop before it.
TCU might have an office that can assist you.

From ITC you can take bus route 7, that route runs down University and will drop you off at TCU.
