A great place to get in would be from Dallas. Two major highways connect McKinney: US Route 75 and Sam Rayburn Tollway.
Unfortunately, no major taxicab services or buses serve McKinney. McKinney does not have any agreement with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), and their senior bus service, CCART, shut down due to budget issues around June 2013. The best option would be to use a car.
