Arrange Transportation for Your Event

Transportation Services will help you arrange transportation for your local event, group travel, airport transfers, or mini-tour. Contact Transportation Services at transit@utdallas.edu to arrange transportation. 

In addition, Transportation Services offers complimentary Comet Cabs, which may be used for campus tours and special events on campus. Highly visible orange tents mark the gathering place for event attendees, making it clear where to go once guests arrive to campus using their designated entrance and parking lot assignments. Once parked, trained Transportation Services staffers help guests board Comet Cabs for transport to the event location.

To reserve Comet Cabs, complete a UT Dallas Police Event Registration Form. Under Special Parking Requests, make a reservation inquiry for Comet Cab service for your event. Reservations are booked on a first-come, first serve basis.

Comet Cabs:

  • Have a maximum capacity of 14 people.
  • Are equipped with a public announcement system for tour guides.
  • Are all-electric vehicles.
  • Have a range of 50 miles, or 4 to 5 hours on a single charge.

For more information on Comet Cabs, email VisitorParking@utdallas.edu or call Transportation Services at 972-883-7777.
