How to travel around Waco

This is Texas, and everything is bigger here, so getting around within the city requires transport of some kind. Fortunately, Waco offers two free services, the Silo District Downtown Trolley and the DASH (downtown area shuttle). Most tourists rent a vehicle during their visit, as traffic is light and the streets easy to navigate. Best of all, you’ll find that free parking spots are plentiful.

Public Transportation

The Silo District Downtown Trolley operates Monday through Saturday, from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm, and the DASH shuttle runs every 15 minutes, Monday through Friday, from 7:25 am to 5:55 pm. Both have regular stops, but you can also flag them down by catching the driver’s eye and waving for them to stop, which is very convenient when your feet get tired! You can also ride the local buses, although they aren’t particularly geared for tourists. A single-ride fare is $1.50 USD and a day pass costs $3.00 USD.
