Travel and Lodging

UT Southwestern Medical Center offers unmatched convenience for medical travelers in a five-state region.

Traveling to Dallas

Many people from outside the DFW Metroplex travel to UT Southwestern for their medical care. Because of our integrated, team-based approach to caring for people fighting cancer, many come to Simmons Cancer Center from other states in the region.

Our Center is about 20 minutes away from a major international airport, DFW Airport, and about five minutes away from Dallas Love Field. For private aviation travelers, Love Field hosts several full-service FBOs. Amtrak travelers can take a taxi from Union Station in downtown Dallas to Simmons Cancer Center, or simply take the Trinity Rail Express (TRE) from Union Station to Medical Center Station, where campus shuttles are available throughout the day.
