Pony up! SMU TollTags now available from NTTA

SMU TollTag imageSMU fans can now display Mustang spirit wherever they go with a TollTag from the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA).

The new tags, featuring the University’s popular running-mustang image, are the latest addition to the NTTA’s team and collegiate TollTag series.

“I have been a TollTag owner since 1989 and I am thrilled to have a new SMU TollTag as I travel across Texas,” said Alumni Board Chair Leslie Melson ’77. “I encourage all SMU friends, family and alumni to join me in this great opportunity to show Mustang pride on the road.”

Existing TollTag customers can exchange old TollTags for SMU-branded tags at any NTTA service center for no additional cost. Visit ntta.org for service center locations or call 972-818-6882 to request an exchange.

Anyone who does not yet have a TollTag can get an SMU tag at Parking and ID Card Services, 6116 North Central Expressway, Suite 101, from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday. TollTag accounts can be opened for a standard $40, or $20 for infrequent toll-road drivers.

New SMU-branded tags are also available at NTTA service centers.

SMU TollTags can be used for parking at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field, as well as on any toll road in Texas and Oklahoma, including the new TEXpress Lanes.

Tune In: Celebrating 10 years of The Boulevard

10 Years of Boulevarding screencapTen years ago, SMU celebrated the first Universitywide tailgating party to be dubbed “The Boulevard.” The date was Sept. 2, 2000, during the opening of a brand-new Gerald J. Ford Stadium, when a sellout crowd watched the Mustangs beat Kansas.

As Homecoming 2010 approaches, President R. Gerald Turner shares the origin of The Boulevard at SMU, from its inspiration at Ole Miss to the unique qualities that have made it a University tradition.
