Make Your Trip To Ford Stadium Easy!
SMU strives to provide our guests with an exceptional experience, from the moment that fans leave for the game to the time they return home. To that end, SMU has created a transportation and parking plan designed to keep the traffic moving, make it easy to park, and ensure the safety as fans make their way into the stadium.
Fans can get to the game using Dallas' great public transit system, DART. Round-trip passes cost just $4 and parking is free at the DART stations. Mockingbird Station, which is serviced by the Blue, Red and Orange DART Lines, is conveniently located near the SMU Campus. A gameday shuttle bus service is available from Mockingbird Station or fans can take the short walk to Ford Stadium. Many fans don't realize that Mockingbird Station is actually closer to Ford Stadium than SMU's famous Dallas Hall!
For fans driving to the game, both free and paid parking is available. For ease, fans can purchase parking passes in advance. A map is available on SMUMustangs.com/Parking to show campus points of entry. Please note that day-of-game, cash parking is only available via SMU Boulevard, University Boulevard and Hillcrest Avenue. Fans should be advised that the communities of Highland Park and University Park have established resident-only parking areas near the SMU campus. Cars without resident parking or guest permits may be cited by the Police Department. Please use caution. SMU recommends parking only in designated SMU gameday parking areas to avoid any issues. Additional parking information can be found here.
As you approach the stadium, there will be additional signs, as well as police and traffic attendants, to help direct you along your route and to your parking lot entrance.
