COLLEGE STATION - Texas A&M has teamed up with ParkMe to make it easier for you to park on game day. Drivers can now find and reserve gameday parking at the touch of a button.
Go to the Destination Aggieland app on your smartphone or tablet, click My parking and then Buy Game Day parking. On game day, show the attendant a mobile or printed receipt.
“The popularity of Texas A&M football has never been higher,” says Peter Lange, executive director of Texas A&M Transportation Services. “With the expansion in the number of seats in Kyle Field, there will be an increase of traffic and parking concerns on game days.
“ParkMe empowers drivers with tools to help them park and will be a great asset to football fans on game day,” says ParkMe CEO Sam Friedman.
The app is part of the Kyle Field Transportation Plan commissioned by Chancellor John Sharp. The goal is to efficiently manage the increase in traffic created by the $450 million Kyle Field expansion.
