Light Rail
The Dallas Area Rapid Transportation (DART) system makes getting around the Dallas/Fort Worth area quick and efficient. The Orange Line, which has a stop at the Irving Convention Center, also travels to DFW Airport, Dallas’ Love Field Airport, and downtown Dallas.

DART Bus
Irving bus routes connect all parts of Irving and link the city to bus routes into Dallas. Several Irving bus routes connect to the Orange Line, light rail trains traveling to DFW Airport and downtown Dallas, and the Trinity Railway Express, train service between Dallas and Fort Worth.
DART Buses operate every 30 minutes during peak hours, every 60 minutes during off-peak hours and provide transportation from the area’s airports. Find route maps, fares and information about DART here.

Trinity Railway Express
The Trinity Railway Express connects Dallas, Fort Worth, DFW Airport and Irving South and runs seven days a week, though it requires taxi service from the station to the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas.

APT
A quick and easy way to access the businesses, hotels, restaurants and residences located around the Las Colinas Urban Center is the Area Personal Transit (APT) system. The APT is a climate-controlled, on-demand people mover system covering the Urban Center with four passenger stations.
Visitors can travel to Irving via the Orange Line light rail system from downtown Dallas or DFW Airport, exit at the Las Colinas Urban Center Station, and in a matter of minutes board the APT for any of the other three route destinations.
