Plano is in Texas. It is north of Dallas.

Get in

Plano is easily accessable from highway 75, which connects to interstate 20 and runs straight through it. The nearest airport is DFW International in Dallas, which is approximately 30 minutes outside of Plano. The public rail system, DART, does not yet connect the airport to Plano. However, taxis and cars for hire are readily available.

Get around

The public transit system, DART, connects Plano to dallas via the red line which ends at Parker Station located at Parker and 75. From there you can take a Bus to lots of areas in Plano. A day ticket costs US $3.00, $1.50 (Reduced for students with High School Id and elderly), For easier transportation, renting a car is suggested. Plano is a very large city, and a bike will not allow you to get where you want to be in a reasonable amount of time.
