Hi there,

I'm a huge football fan travelling over from Europe for Giants@Cowboys game on September 8th.
I have booked a hotel in downtown Dallas and looking to find out how to get from here to the stadium for the game?

I will not have a rental car and a cab may be quite expensive, has anybody got any other suggestions?

Does anybody know of any shuttle buses that go to games from hotels/bar in downtown area?

Thanks in advance!

Take the TRE or drive west on I-30 from DT Dallas

No rental car is a bad idea.

Thanks but I don't really have choice with the rental car. Any other suggestions?

^ that

Walter Benjamins link seems reasonable

There are no good options. You can take the TRE and then call a cab to pick you up at the TRE station in Grand Prairie. There are also shuttles, but you would need to take a cab to get to them. Not sure which way is easiest or most cost effective, because parking near the stadium is outrageously expensive.
Arlington Shuttle


Dallas to Arlington is $80 each way on Uber:

A car. Just the way Jerry Jones likes it and always wanted it. Take plenty of 20s for parking...Jerry needs a new lift.

Thanks Ronnie, I'm thinking Walter Benjamins is looking like a decent option.

I don't know how you're possibly going to visit Dallas without a rental car! Seriously, rethink that plan if you want to see much of our city outside a small uptown / downtown area.

there's a rental car facility at the base of the Adolphus hotel downtown if you feel the need but the Bowl Bus from Union Station is the best idea. If you are only here for the game, you will have a great time and won't need a rental car. There is plenty to do downtown that is walkable from any of the downtown hotels.
