The easiest way to get to the center by DART is to ride the closest DART line in your city to downtown Dallas. Once you reach Downtown Dallas, you can get off at the West End, Akard, St. Paul, or Pearl station. At the transfer stations, wait and board the Green Line train heading to Buckner Station. 

Get off at Buckner Station, and board DART Bus route 466. Keep your eyes open for the large brown Trinity River Audubon Center sign on the left side of the road and get off! The Center is about a half mile walk or bike ride from the mail entrance.
