Dallas, Texas, United States

Starting June 12, 2022, the United States no longer requires a negative COVID-19 test to enter the country. Proof of vaccination for noncitizen nonimmigrants to travel to the United States is still in effect. For more information, see Requirement for Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination for Air Passengers.
St. Mark's School of Texas offers COVID-19 testing at the conference for anyone who needs testing for diagnostics or for travel. Simply book a test online with the provider. St. Mark’s will pay for diagnostic testing on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. If you want a PCR test on Wednesday, you must pay for it individually.
There are two airports near St. Mark's School of Texas and the Omni Dallas Hotel.
Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport (DFW)
DFW is 19 miles from the Omni Hotel Dallas and St. Mark’s School of Texas. Ride shares (Uber and Lyft) are popular and plentiful in the city. Taxi, shuttle, and limousine services can be arranged. A taxi from DFW to downtown Dallas costs approximately US $45, with ride share options somewhat less expensive.
Dallas-Love Field Airport (DAL)
DAL is 8 miles from the Omni Hotel Dallas and St. Mark’s School of Texas. Ride shares (Uber and Lyft) are popular and plentiful in the city. Taxi, shuttle, and limousine services can be arranged. A taxi from Love Field to downtown Dallas costs approximately US $20, with ride share options a little cheaper.
On Wednesday at 1:15 PM, a limited number of seats are available on coaches transporting attendees to both airports. To reserve your seat, please sign up when you register on Sunday in the Commons, available on a first-come, first-served basis until seats are filled.
We do not recommend mass transit from either airport because it is neither efficient nor intuitive.
All major car rental companies operate at both airports.
The easiest and most dependable form of local transportation, ride share companies (Uber and Lyft) are ubiquitous in Dallas. You may also book taxis and limousines directly:
Dallas Taxi Cab Service
Dallas Yellow Cab
DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) operates light rail and bus service across the city. Find more information and a journey planner at www.dart.org.
