The area is simple to get around, especially in the Metroplex.  A large network of freeways and loops exists throughout Dallas/Fort Worth. 
DART is the public transportation system in Dallas, operating an extensive bus and rail network.  For stays in the downtow/uptown Dallas area, the rail network can be a very inexpensive and efficient way to travel.
Nearby Fort Worth operates "The T".  Primarily a bus system, The T does operate a train which travels between downtown Fort Worth and Dallas, interchanging with DART rail upon reaching Dallas.
