Ride DART to the Big 12 Championship Game
DART's Big 12 Flyer express bus service is ready to carry loads of college football fans to the big game at Texas Stadium from five convenient DART locations on Saturday, December 1.
Park free at any four park and ride lots and connect to the championship game for just $5 roundtrip. There is no free parking at the West End pickups, but you can reach them via many DART bus or light rail line connections. The fare for children under age 12 and adults 65 and older is only $4.
To the Championship Game
Fans taking the early bus to the game will be dropped off near the Corral Club at Texas Stadium. Fans pay their fare when they board the bus at the park and ride lots. The fare is cash only, and exact change is required. The first buses begin leaving the lots about two and a half hours prior to kickoff and take fans to the Corral Club. Buses leaving closer to kickoff will transport fans to the DART bus parking lot (the Gold Lot). Buses leave the park & ride lots approximately every 30 minutes, with the final departure for the game one hour before kickoff.
