The city of Houston has been prepping for three years to be ready for the influx of people that will be coming into our fair city for Super Bowl LI.  Transportation is always a big concern for anyone traveling to a city they aren’t familiar with.  Here are some good tips, information, and maps to help everyone, locals and visitors alike as they travel around the city.

PARKING AVAILABILITY

There are more than 62,000 spots for Super Bowl-related events. Fans are encouraged to park on the west side of downtown to ride the Special Event Circulators to their destination. Coming downtown during business hours (Monday-Friday), there will still be 12,000+ designated fan parking spots during that time.  More Parking Info

PRE-PAID PARKING APP

Through the Host Committee website and the Fan Mobile Pass app, guests at any event in downtown Houston will be able to pre-purchase their parking spot at a guaranteed rate.
