Public transportation from DFW to Dallas downtown

I am staying at the Hotel Lawrence downtown opposite Union station for four days. I do believe that the train from DFW airport can take me there. However my return flight leaves at 6.30 in the morning. Is there a train plying at 4.30 in the morning to the airport? Is there any other means of transport at reasonable prices?

The Trinity Railway Express (TRE) is the commuter train that travels between Fort Worth and Dallas. There is a stop at Centreport Station with a shuttle from there to/from the airport. Unfortunately, the earliest weekday train from Dallas Union Station westbound leaves at 0550.

Although it may not be as low priced as the train, a taxi for a flat rate of $40 from the Dallas central buisiness district to DFW would be my next choice.


You could also check out shared ride options such as Super Shuttle, which runs around $17-20 but you are at the mercy of their schedule (as in leaving around 0330 and picking up multiple other passengers at various hotels) so I avoid them whenever possible.
