With three of you, and your dad needs to favor his hip, I'd either take a cab, or contract with a good car service. I use these guys when I fly out of town for extended trip, saves bothering with parking, etc., and they have been very reliable. Meet you curbside, Lincoln Town Car (or a stretch if you like).

Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 8): I'd go with what he said, he knows the Dallas area quite well and this service sounds exactly like what Mark is asking for. Check it out Mark, Texan knows Dallas quite well.
I'd say me Sleekjet and UAl747 know Dallas fairly well also, so don't discount our opinion.

Why would anyone take DART and TRE. It is VERY inconvenient. You would have to take the No. 39 DART bus to downtown (the wrong direction) and then take the TRE to the middle of nowhere and then wait for the TRE bus to DFW. It would take you the same time to walk there
Take a taxi or one of the other limo/shuttle options presented by Texan and SCCutler.
(Disclosure: I live in Dallas and fly every week - I know what I'm talking about also).

Listen, avoid the hassle, just hail a cab. That by far is my best advice for you. Not that DART doesn't work, but it's the most simplistic solution to the problem. Though it's gonna cost you like $35-45.

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 15): The feuding must REALLY be hot and heavy to completely ignore the needs of the customer. DFW's and DAL's websites don't really address the options at all.
It is the fault of the cities and the consumers. There is no mass transit option because people in the DFW area do not use mass transit. Eventually there will be a connecting rail link, with the connection close by DAL. However, that is not scheduled for completion until 2011-2013. In addition, the rail will only connect to DFW Centreport, which is south of the airport and requires a bus connection to the terminals. Pretty much is just very inconvenient. The current mass transit option is to take the 39 bus from DAL to downtown Dallas, walk over to West End Station, catch the rail to Union Station, transfer to the Trinity Railway Express which will drop you off at DFW Centreport, transfer to the terminal bus, and then wait until you get to the correct terminal. The only two bus lines are the 310 from North Irving Transit Center, which goes to the North Remote Parking, and the 408 bus from Medical/Market Center to DFW Remote South Parking. The 408 bus takes an hour for what is a 25 minute drive when it is not rush hour.
It would be easier if there were a route from DAL to DFW, but that is unlikely in the near future.
