Park It: Parking and Tailgating @ TCU UPDATED FOR 2018

Recommended Posts

So if they are closing Stadium Dr between 6 and 7, how do they plan on getting the shuttle busses in and out?  Or is UBC now the drop off/pick up pt (which will be very unpopular)?

 


Edit (which doesnt clear up how the busses will get in and out):

 

Shuttle Services



Free shuttle services are available from all remote parking lots beginning three (3) hours prior to kickoff. The last shuttle will depart from Amon G. Carter Stadium 45 minutes after the conclusion of the game. Shuttles will drop-off on Stadium Drive near the Brown-Lupton University Union and on Bellaire Drive North near the Founders Lot.

@PurpleDawg, That's last year's map.

Still the one they've got on the website, too.

I'm guessing the police will let the busses through. The parking info still says pickup in front of the Student Union. Hope that's the case, as I will be riding the shuttles for the first time this year.

Thanks for that, but they haven't got all their links sync'd up yet as I showed. I'll make sure the links I posted for information are correct.

They've got the links for the postgame traffic flow all fixed now across the new GoFrogs. Here's the link one more time in case you want to bookmark it:

For the first game this year (Southern) I rode the shuttle from Travis Baptist Church. For the Iowa State game, I rode from McKinney Church. Both were pretty efficient operations, and got us to and from the stadium fairly quickly. Parking and the shuttle were free.

At Travis the busses are large vans that hold about 20 people. Seats a bit cramped but not bad for a 10-15 minute ride. Loading was quick. We were delivered to Stadium Drive in front of the student union, about 50 yards from the stadium entrance.

At McKinney they had large busses, probably held 40-50 people each. That took a little longer to load. Petty comfortable ride, but the driver took a circuitous route because the bus was so large it couldn't make a sharp left turn. We unloaded on Bellaire at the entrance to the Founder's Lot, which meant to get to Frog Alley I had to walk around both practice fields, probably 250 yards.

All in all, I'd say the ride from Travis Baptist was the better experience.

Sometime this season, I'm going to give St Stephen's a try.

I parked at St. Stephen's Church for the OU game. There were few people using that location, just three of us on the ride over. I'd say the line to board for return trip after the game was a tenth of the lines for Travis and Paschal. The bus was a van like used at Travis, ride was comfortable and quick both ways, as we didn't have traffic on that route after we crossed University. Parking costs $20 which I was told would go to support the church's missionary and children's programs. Could be worth it if you are in a hurry after the game and want to avoid a long line. If you want to try to avoid that fee, the weather is good and you don't mind a short walk, there is a lot in the arm of Forest Park just downhill from the church.

 

I think I will be parking and riding from Travis for the final two games this season.
