Arlington is the largest city in the United State of America that has no public transprotation. You MUST have a car of your own to get around. The plus, Arlington is in the middle of Dallas and Fort Worth areas so living in this area give you more employment opportunity. But as I said you MUST have you own transportation. With gas price going up and up commuting is getting hard for the lower salary empolyment people to do. Arlington is a major entainment city in the area. Ranger statium and Dallas Cowboys are moving to Arlington in 2009. Also, have Six Flaggs Over Texas. Close to two zoos in DFW area and others. DFW Airport is 45 to 20 minutes from Arlington depending on which part you live in. Private airport is in Arlington on the east side. Hope this help answer your questions.
