I used to live in Arlington. The Airport is south of 20 and Viridian is north of 30. Traveling from one area to another in Arlington is a big fat pain even when it's not rush hour. They're doing work trying to finally fix the interchange between 30 and 360 which creates big traffic problems plus there's a major freight train line that bisects the city from east to west with a limited number of streets that go over or under the line. I've lost track of the number of times I've been late to places because of that damn train and I'm usually an on-time person. It's such an annoyance that if someone in Arlington asks why you're late and the answer is "train," no further explanation is needed. If I had to commute to south of 20 in Arlington, I'd want to at the very least live south of the train line. I recommend the Lake Arlington area or Mansfield. If public schools aren't an issue, then Dalworthington Gardens and Pantego are also good choices.

Thanks y’all for your responses. Is there any neighborhood north or closer to Dallas that is recommended as well or are they all not commutable due to traffic? Really want to live in Plano/Arlington/Little Elm but those are too far from work

The problem is that if you go north or east, you run into some very rough/unsafe parts of Dallas where you wouldn't want to live. In order to get to a better part of town, such as Las Colinas, you'd be looking at an extremely long commute through heavy traffic. That's why we are recommending you look to the south towards Mansfield, Midlothian, etc.

Yes, the Collin County suburbs will be too far away when your work location is in SE Tarrant County.
