The city of Dallas is distinct for being fancy, glamorous — and even ostentatious! If you want to have easy access to the best that Dallas has to offer while still choosing a more laid-back place to live, Duncanville could be your perfect new home. Cool, unpretentious and generally affordable, this town is part of the “Best Southwest” collection of four suburbs in South Dallas County.
What’s that old saying in real estate about the most important criteria for where you should live? Location, location, location! That’s what Duncanville has going for it, especially if you work downtown or in southwest Dallas, or even in Arlington or Grand Prairie. It’s just a quick trip on I-20 or Highway 67 to get in and out of Duncanville.
Just like most of the rest of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, it can be challenging to get around here without a car. Most people who live here travel by car to work and other places they need to go– but that doesn’t mean there’s no public transportation options available. The percentage of Duncanville residents using public transit is quite a bit higher than the incredibly low Texas state average.
A lot of Duncanville residents travel by using the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) bus system at least part of the time. Even if you have to spend a little extra time waiting around for the bus, it’s still well worth it to avoid the famously hectic Dallas traffic– not to mention the expense of gas and parking.
