Patron Drop Off Area

The Alamodome now has 2 patron drop-off and pick-up locations for events. These areas are located at the north end of Lot B on S. Cherry St. and there is a dedicated location specifically for our disabled patrons in Lot A.
Alamodome patrons should know that, while access is unrestricted prior to the beginning of the event, vehicles will not be allowed to return to these locations until at least 30 minutes from the time the event ends. Vehicles will be allowed to enter the locations prior to the closure of inbound traffic approaching the Alamodome. Should these areas be filled with vehicles waiting for patrons to return, overflow vehicles will be directed out of the areas and must relocate to an area of the driver’s choosing away from the Alamodome.
Vehicles returning to the Lot B drop-off and pick-up location are advised to approach the area eastbound on Cesar Chavez Blvd. to S. Cherry Street. Vehicles returning Lot A disabled patron drop-off and pick-up location should return using the IH 37 northbound access road.
The Taxi/Limousine drop-off and pick-up area is located near the Southeast Staircase on the north side of Lot A.
