The City of Dallas operates many parking zones around the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and most are pay-to-park zones. There is one parking lot directly in front of the Convention Center, located at 650 S Griffin Street, Dallas, TX 75202. The parking garage that is adjacent to the Convention Center has plenty of space, but is $12 per entry. GATS does not benefit in any way from parking fees.
GATS has provided free parking for trucks and RVs at Fair Park located at 3013 S Haskell Ave, Dallas, TX 75223. TA | Petro has sponsored a Truck Parking Community that all are welcome to enjoy. The lot is 5 miles from the Convention Center so GATS has provided free shuttles to and from the TA | Petro Truck Parking Community that will operate during show hours.
