When you purchase parking for the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, you will have a pass for a designated lot. Your parking pass is valid only for the lot designated on the pass. By having a specific parking lot assignment, you will be directed to your lot, avoiding the task of circling the Stadium in search of an open space. What’s more, we can provide you with custom driving directions what will reduce traffic congestion and get you to your parking lot safely and efficiently by using the Dallas Cowboys App.


Once you enter the appropriate lot, you will be directed to a parking spot by an attendant. By following the direction of the parking staff you will get parked quickly and safely. A parking pass is valid for one (1) spot, and parking spots are for vehicles only. If you want to park near a friend, you must have parking passes for the same lot and arrive together. Parking spots cannot be reserved or saved for guests arriving at a later time. Parking spots are for vehicles only. Drive aisles must remain clear at all times. No items (coolers, tents, tables, chairs, etc.) of any kind may be placed on the ground behind, in front of or around parked vehicles. These items are permitted only in designated tailgating spaces.


There are two passenger drop-off zones at the stadium. One is located on the North side of Randol Mill Road adjacent to Lot 1 on Randol Mill Road, and the other is located on the South side off of Cowboys Way in Lot 6. Due to postgame traffic, these areas may not be accessible for pick-up. Guests with disabilities or limited mobility may use the shuttle serving all AT&T Stadium parking lots.

The only passenger pick-up zone at the stadium is located at the entrance to the AT&T Plaza adjacent to North Collins Street and Cowboys Way. Taxis are also staged at this location for drop-off pre-event and pick up post-event.
