Ride Transit to the Paycom Center

Ride RAPID bus service for free on Thunder home playoff gamedays.

Follow these 3 keys to Victory:

  1. Know the Game Plan:  Avoid gameday traffic hassles with OKC’s most frequent bus route serving Downtown, Midtown, Asian District, and NW Expressway. With 32 stops along RAPID, a bus every 15 minutes, and a VIP drop-off at the Paycom Center*, we’ll get you right in the heart of the game day buzz. Find the map and schedule here.
  2. Park & Ride:  Free parking is available at the Park & Ride lot at Northwest Expressway and Median Avenue. Skip the hassle and expense of parking near the arena – find the convenient option here.
  3. Pickup up an Assist: Know friends going to the game, Thunder Up in the Park, or their favorite gameday spot? Let them know they can also ride RAPID for free courtesy of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

*Please note: Starting 4 hours prior to tip-off, RAPID will drop fans off at the Arena Streetcar stop near the entrance of the Paycom Center. Post-game fans leaving the arena should return to the Arena Streetcar stop to board the RAPID service back home.

Whether you’re going to a show or cheering on the Thunder, public transportation is a great way to get downtown to the Paycom Center.

Ride the OKC Streetcar

Streetcars drive along two loops: the Bricktown Loop that travels through Bricktown and around Myriad Gardens and the Downtown Loop that travels through downtown and up to Midtown. Whichever loop you’re on, there are two super convenient stops outside the arena. One is immediately north of the arena on Reno Avenue, and the other is directly southwest of the arena at Oklahoma City Boulevard and South Robinson Avenue. When departing after your event, be mindful that you get back on the same Streetcar Loop you used for arrival. See the real-time map here.

Ride the Bus

  • RAPID: Take advantage of Oklahoma City’s most frequent bus route and ride the RAPID line into downtown. Board the RAPID anywhere along the line, or park for free at the Park & Ride lot at Northwest Expressway and Median Avenue. The two bus stops closest to the Paycom Center are #3003 at Broadway and Park and #4249 at Robinson and Park. Both are about 2½ blocks away from the arena.
  • Fixed-Route Buses: Several bus routes have stops within walking distance of the Paycom Center: Route 009 from western Oklahoma City; Routes 011, 012, 013, and 040 from south Oklahoma City; and Route 015 from Midwest City.
  • From the Transit Center: Many bus routes go through the transit center, which is about 1 mile away from the arena. If you ride downtown to the center, you have several options for getting closer to the Paycom Center. You can board the Streetcar at the stop immediately southeast of the center. You can also ride the RAPID line from the center. Board the RAPID bus on the east side of the platform, going into downtown, and then disembark at one of the next two stops: #3003 at Broadway and Park or #4249 at Robinson and Park. Both are about 2½ blocks away from the Paycom Center.

Parking Downtown

If you’d rather drive your own vehicle into downtown, EMBARK offers four convenient parking garages:

Event parking is $10 at each location, and – bonus! – your parking receipt gives you free access OKC Streetcar and RAPID all day. You can pay at the garage kiosk or book your spot on the Flowbird app.

Rent a Bike

Grab a pedal or electric Spokies bike and make your own path to the Paycom Center. Simply locate, reserve, and unlock a bike through the mobile app and ride it to the arena. Several bike racks (where you can return your Spokies bicycle and end your ride) are near the arena, including one on the east side of Myriad Botanical Gardens and two on Oklahoma City Boulevard on either side of South Robinson Avenue.
