Default Houston rodeo parking pass?

I got roped into going to the rodeo this Saturday. Is it too late to look for a parking pass?
Is it better to just ride the Metro or Lift to get there?

I've had luck going the back way, opposite the carnival. 59 > Kirby > NRG. Makes for an easy exit.

I wouldn't park in the rodeo lots. I've been parking in any lot I can find as I get closer to the stadium. If need be, take a pedi cab. They just ask that you pay "what you think is fair". This is my first year at the HLSR (though my gf is a perennial attendee) and I've been really impressed with how easy we've been able to get in and out.

I was lucky enough to find someone that worked close by. We parked at his work and Uber'd from there. Regardless I highly suggest getting dropped off instead of trying to fight the parking, it is a joke.

There is a $20 lot where 6 flags used to be. Just park there, it's a 5 minute walk.

Park in the cash lot where astroworld used to be. Its 20 bucks. If you get there early enough and park towards the front half of the lot its super easy to get out. We went last Saturday and got out of the Parking lot in under five minutes. We were headed back towards Sugar Land area so we took Fannin to Holmes, to 90 through stafford back to 59 and it was smooth as could be. Hardly any traffic at all.

If you get a parking pass remember the earlier you get there the closer you will have to park to the stadium. Not good.

I like park and ride we used it last Saturday by the time I get down to Shepherd and 45 it's enough traffic for me already. We always stop at Sonic or somewhere and grab a Coke on the way in and top it off making a mixed drink when we get out of the truck at the park and ride and just relax and enjoy a drink on the way there without having to fight traffic and they drop you off at the gate.

We tried to get an Uber on opening night but the "Uber lanes" were backed up and not moving. Hopefully they've fixed that by now.

When I don't have a pass I just park in the Yellow lot off of Kirby for $20, last time it was harder getting in than leaving.

this. We left from richmond to the rodeo and took 90 all the way to belfort. Then took a right on belfort and came in on the back side of that parking lot at astroworld. $20 and a short walk later, we were in line in less than 30 mins with a 3 yo. Backtracked the same way back to katy and in our driveway in 40.

Do you know which crossstreets the cash lot is? I'm not familiar with where Astroworld used to be.
Sounds like a good option tho.

The pin is the cash lot where we parked. $20 easy in and out last Friday night we didn’t have to sit in traffic at all after the rodeo. The corner of Murworth and Lantern Point.

Google rodeo park and ride. There are different locations on each side of town. And the one I use may not be best for you depending where your coming from
You park at a metro park and ride location that's servicing the rodea. Buy a wrist band about $5 round trip load up on a metro bus and it drops you off at the gates. When your ready to leave go back to where they dropped you off and get in the line (there will be signs for different park and ride locations) just make sure your in the right one and they drive you back to your car....lines leaving can be long but I've never waited over 20 minutes or so...usually goes quick. I started going to rodeo in Houston by myself in highschool. We would ride park and ride with a group of friends. Nothing to it

My bad, just now seeing this. Cross streets are Kirby, Bellfort, Fannin and 610. If you google Davis Chevrolet the cash lot is just to the right of that. There's a bridge that you ride the shuttle over 610 and it'll drop you off right at the carnival. Tried to get a pic up for you but its not wanting to cooperate this morning.
