Stadium Information

About Toyota Center:

Opening in 2003, this venue is unique in the fact that the playing surface is located 32 feet below the street level which resulted in one of the largest lower seating levels in all of professional sports.

Tour Info:

A variety of tour options are available. Please visit for tour information.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

All bags larger than 14"x14"x6" such as backpacks, suitcases, beach bags, etc. will be prohibited from entry into the arena.  All bags are subject to inspection before entry.

Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.

Parking & Transportation

Parking Options

There's a neighboring parking garage that is shared with the convention center and several parking lots located around the arena.

We're setting up a partnership with a new parking company. Stay tuned for more details!

Bus Service:

Clay St at La Branch St and Bell St at La Branch St are the two closest bus stops to the stadium. Please visit the METRO site to plan your trip.

Rail Service:

Bell St Station is a half mile walk to the stadium. Please visit the METRO site to plan your trip.

Taxi & Rideshare Service:

There does not appear to be an official taxi stand. Between the convention center and the stadium, a taxi should not be hard to flag down after your event.

Closest Major Airport: George Bush Intercontental Airport (IAH)
