I live in Irving on the west side of Dallas. We have DART buses that run all over Irving and Dallas County. I was without a car for over a year and rode the bus to work every day. I have a 1 bedroom, 1 bath small apartment which I pay $ 500 a month, $ 60 a month for electric, and $ 30 a month for water. During the winter months of January and February the electric goes up to about $ 100. Irving is convenient to everything.
The crime rate has gone down every year for the past 11 years and is now the lowest it’s ever been. There are new companies and businesses moving here all the time and we have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. We have all kinds of stores and restaurants and jobs about anywhere you want to work. The school system is rated exceptional. Irving is a friendly city with a lot of city parks with hiking/biking trails in every part of the city. I think it is a great place to live.
