Parking Map & Instructions
Dear Teachers and Volunteers:
Please print these parking directions and teachers, please give this to the bus drivers. Click here for one printable document with the various TSGC map information.
Directions for buses:
Buses will use the bus loop near the Quad (corner of Sessom and LBJ) to drop the students off. After dropping the students off, go back down to the light at LBJ/Sessom – turn right. Then head to the East side of campus towards the Coliseum or Stadium lots. (P9 & P10E on the map)
Stay on Sessom until it dead ends at Aquarena Springs Dr. – Turn left.
Pass through one light (Charles Austin Dr.) and the 1st parking area is on the right.
If that lot is full, the second parking lot is at the next light on the right (Post Rd).
Buses are not allowed to park at the Sessom lot (R2 & P5 on the map) because the asphalt is not made for the weight of buses. However, this is a decent alternative lot for the volunteers in the event the other parking garage is full. (Click on images to enlarge)
Parking in designated areas is FREE on weekends. (Make sure it’s not “Reserved”.)
