  • Public Transportation to the Convention Center

With its convenient Downtown location, there’s hardly any need to drive to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.  Public transportation is readily available and convenient.

Amtrak and the Trinity Railway Express both service Dallas Union Station, which is located just 2 1/2 blocks northeast of the Convention Center.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has a light rail station at the Convention Center.  Take either the Red or Blue line to the front door of the KBHCCD. The DART rail station is located on Lamar Street at Memorial Drive.

Or ride DART’s free D-Link shuttle bus (Route 722) to shopping and entertainment.  The D-Link stop is located on Lamar Street at Ceremonial Street, just outside the C Lobby entrance. See the D-Link map on the KBHCCD Website for more information.  The Convention Center is located at stops #3 and #4.

  • By Air To Dallas

Dallas is centrally located and served by two major airports, Dallas Love Field (DAL) and Dallas/Fort Worth International (DFW)

Dallas Love Field is a short seven miles from the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.  In about 30 minutes, travelers from D/FW can arrive at the facility. 

  • Parking

There is currently highway construction underway to improve connectivity and traffic flow into Downtown Dallas. For details including detours and lane closures go to Dallas Horseshoe Project. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2017.

Car, truck, and trailer parking at the convention center is easy.  The KBHCCD garage and three surface parking lots (Lots C, D, and E) can accommodate almost any vehicle; however, they do not offer overnight parking or utility connections for campers and RVs.  Parking is $15 per entry (ie, no in-and-out service)

  • Guaranteed Parking

For your convenience, the Dallas Convention Center has partnered with Parking Panda, the nationwide leader in online parking reservations, to allow visitors to purchase guaranteed parking near the convention center in advance. With Parking Panda your reservation is always guaranteed. Parking Panda is only available for Lots D and E. Lot D is $15 and Lot E is $10. Click here to reserve your parking in advance. 

We encourage carpooling, or using public transportation (see information above) as parking will be limited, especially if there are several events at the convention center that weekend.
