One of the easiest ways to get to the game is VIA’s Park and Ride service, which drops fans off at the Alamodome’s front door (North door). Service starts three hours prior to kickoff and the round-trip fare is only $5. Also dropping off at the front door of the Alamodome is VIA’s PRIMO service, which makes stops throughout downtown. The PRIMO fare is $1.30 each way. For more information, check out VIA online at viainfo.net or our Transportation page.
Parking at the Alamodome is available through pre-purchased permits only. There will be no game day sales. Parking permits allow fans to tailgate within their allotted space starting at 10 a.m. on game day.
For other parking options, fans are encouraged to utilize the parking garages and surface lots in downtown San Antonio. Instead of driving to the Alamodome and working back toward these available lots, fans will experience less congestion by going directly to one of the downtown lots viewable at alamobowl.com/thegame/transportation/. We highly recommend utilizing ride share services on game day.
Fans can utilize ride share to come to and leave the Alamodome across the street at the Convention Center. First time Uber riders can get started here and insert the promo code VABOWL18 to receive a free ride up to $20 off. Already an Uber rider? Don’t forget to share this promo code with others so that they can enjoy a ride around town!
All parking at the Alamodome requires a prepaid parking pass. There are no game day sales. If you have a pass, the lots will open by 10 a.m. except for the Tower Lot which opens four hours prior to kickoff (tailgating is not allowed in this lot).
Tailgating is restricted to the space in front or rear of your vehicle. Do not obstruct the driving lane. Blocking off or saving spaces is not permitted. Stages, large balloons, kites, platforms, tarps, etc. are not allowed.Roadways, aisles and other parking spaces must be kept free of tailgating equipment to allow for vehicle and pedestrian traffic. No solicitation, selling or marketing of any kind is allowed. Alcoholic beverages are permitted. No glass containers.
Approved Cooking Appliances: grills for charcoal, wood, small propane pits and electric. A fire extinguisher must accompany each group using a cooking appliance and a person knowledgeable in its operation must attend to cooking appliances when hot.
No food or beverages are allowed to be taken into the Alamodome. No loud music or profanity. No children playing in the thoroughfare. Separate containers are available in Lots B & C for hot coals and trash.
All parking, including disabled spaces, is sold by pre-paid parking permit. Alamodome parking lots open at 10:00 a.m. and close 1 hour after the conclusion of the game. Disabled patrons without a parking pass can utilize the ADA drop off area located in Lot A and proceed to alternate parking offsite. To check parking availability, please call 210-704-6666.
Tickets go on sale through the Valero Alamo Bowl website each summer followed by a late August onsale via ticketmaster.com and the Alamodome’s Southwest Box Office which is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For the elite fan looking for the VIP Experience, official ticket and hospitality packages are available from PrimeSport. PrimeSport hospitality is available with or without game tickets and includes regional food stations, open bar, music and more!
Tickets sold on the Valero Alamo Bowl website prior to team announcement are season “option” tickets which means the Bowl typically offers the buyer an option on the same seats (and a future upgrade opportunity if better seats come available) the following year. However, the Valero Alamo Bowl reserves the right to reprice, reclaim and re-purpose seats annually at our discretion.
