Is Kaufman a town where I'll need a car to get around?
Probably. Public transportation in Kaufman is provided by KART, or Kaufman Area Rural Transportation. KART is a "demand response" transportation service that enables Kaufman residents to get to jobs, go shopping, run errands, make medical appointments, or visit friends. KART also provides Medicaid transportation to Kaufman residents. However, for most people KART cannot be used as a regular mode of transportation, and a car is required to get around.
Why should I move to Kaufman?
With a population of about 9,000, Kaufman is a city in Kaufman County, Texas. Compared to the rest of the country, the cost of living in Kaufman is 17 percent lower than the US average, making it a good place for people on a budget. Located just 40 minutes east of Dallas, Kaufman is ideal for those that work in the city but prefer to live in a smaller, more manageable community.

Kaufman students are primarily served by the Kaufman Independent School District, which was rated better than 64.9 percent of school districts in Texas and 58.5 percent of school districts in the United States.
Is Kaufman pet friendly?
Kaufman isn't the best place for pets. First of all, it isn't home to any official off-leash dog areas, and there are few parks in town where you can bring your pets on-leash. Shannon Park might be the only option in that regard. If you have a sizeable yard, this might not pose much of an issue, but it will if you don't. If you're willing to get out of the city, one good place to go in the area is Purtis Creek State Park, located 40 minutes southeast of Kaufman in Eustace.
