    Ashok, unfortunately, Arlington, Texas, has the distinction of being perhaps the largest city in the U.S. with no public transportation system - no buses or anything. Instead, the city spends its money helping rich people get richer by funding part of the construction of new sports stadiums (oops - I shouldn't be political ;-) ).

    To be fair, nowhere in North Central Texas is mass transit well developed; it is presumed that everyone but the poorest of people has a car, and that all visitors will rent a car.

    I looked at the UTA website, and it was quite unhelpful to such a sensible question as yours. Hmmmn, two choices: (1) contact UTA and see if there are any shuttles for the particular reason that you are visiting (i.e., if you are coming for some program), and (2) take a taxi (there are always plenty of taxis at DFW).

    Sorry...
