Mean Green Game Day
It’s fall in Texas, and you know what that means: time to pack the stadiums for a dose of football! Whether you’re a season ticket holder or you haven’t been back to Denton since you graduated, now is the perfect time to experience game day in Denton.
North Texas has six home games this year, so come and support head coach Seth Littrell and the Mean Green. And we’ve made it easier than ever to get to and from the games. Just ride the FREE Mean Green Game Day Shuttle! The shuttle will leave from the parking lot directly across the street from the Denton County Transportation Authority’s A-train (which connects with the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system, to get our alumni and fans directly from Dallas here), and will take fans right through the heart of downtown, with key stops at shopping, restaurants and bars, before dropping you off at the Transportation Center, located in the Orange Lot near the pedestrian bridge across I-35 from Apogee Stadium!
Support our Game Day Champions – our local businesses – by patronizing them before and after the game. The shuttle runs three hours before kick-off through the game until an hour after the game ends, so there’s plenty of time to hop off, grab a beverage, grab a bite and get to the game.
Starting three hours before every home game, and continuing for an hour after, the 2019 Mean Green Game Day Shuttle will provide free and easy travel to and from North Texas games and Downtown Denton with no worries about traffic and parking hassles. Leave your car at home this football season for a unique game day experience in Denton!

DCTA has fare-free zones now – including from the MedPark Station to the DDTC. MedPark has plenty of parking, so park there, ride for free to downtown and hop right on the shuttle across the street! The final train back south after the game will leave the DDTC at 11:53 p.m.
Please keep in mind that open containers are not allowed on the Mean Green Game Day shuttle. Thank you for your cooperation.
