Passing the traffic jams is easy

DART's Cowboys Flyer Makes 'road trips' easier for fans

Beating the traffic jams to Texas Stadium is a perfect pass for Dallas Cowboy fans who board DART's Cowboys Flyer, which takes off from nine free and convenient park and ride locations before each home game and delivers fans to the Gold Lot.

DARTing to the Cowboys games just costs $5 round trip for adults and $4 for children under 12 and adults 65 and older, and that includes free parking! Fares are cash only, exact change required.

Flyers begin heading to Texas Stadium two hours before game time. The last shuttles pull out one hour before game time. DART passengers also receive free entrance into the Corral Club, the popular Texas Stadium gathering spot. Unlike previous years, though, the Cowboys Flyer will drop all fans off at Texas Stadium's Gold Lot and will not provide drop-off service to the Corral Club. While at the Gold Lot, before games against Tennessee, New York Giants, Carolina, Seattle and Jacksonville, fans can enjoy free barbecue from Red, Hot & Blue at a Gold Lot tailgate party.

After the game, fans will board return buses from the Gold Lot. The last bus departs from the stadium 30 minutes after the game.
