Football Gameday Parking 2019

  • Parking is available for fans attending the game, but availability has changed. Please review the 2019 Football Season Parking Mapand the Destination Aggieland app to see the changes.
  • Reserve the closest available footballparking now through ParkMobile.
  • Fans can also park near the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, the Bonfire Memorial off University Drive, the Northside Garage or on Agronomy Road and pay $20 or $25 cash.
  • Remember, free gameday shuttles run throughout campus from parking areas, so catch a ride to the game on the Aggie Spirit bus after you park your car.

Shuttles

For visiting fans who prefer to avoid traffic, Transportation Services provides free gameday shuttles that can be used to get on and off campus. See schedules for operating times.

Traffic

Expect heavy traffic on Wellborn Road, University Drive and George Bush Drive and avoid those areas, if possible. FM 2818 traffic is usually lighter pre-game and provides a faster route to many parking areas.

Make note of gameday road closures that begin either four hours pre-game or at 8 a.m., whichever is later:

  • Coke Street closes north of Lewis Street – access allowed for D permits and disabled parking; opens 1.5 hours post-game.
  • Olsen Boulevard closes near Reed Arena – access allowed for E, G, P permits & ParkMobile permits; opens 1.5 hours post-game.
  • Houston Street closes at George Bush Drive – access only for C permits, Lot 69 & Texas A&M Foundation; opens  one hour post-game.
  • Joe Routt/Stallings Boulevard closes until 1.5 hours post-game.
  • Several other road closures begin around the start of the fourth quarter to help fans exit the parking lots and garages.

Download the Destination Aggieland app for access to post-game traffic maps that can be used to find the best route when leaving campus after the game.
