McKinney is a city in the Blackland Prairie region of Texas.
A great place to get in would be from Dallas. Two major highways connect McKinney, US Route 75 and Sam Rayburn Tollway.
Unfortunately, no major taxicab services or buses serve McKinney, and the only bus services are for seniors (but not your older relative [if you live in McKinney then never mind]) and bus services for schools. The best option would be to use a car.
