Dodgers Offer Free Parking for Carpools of Four or More
The Frank McCourt-era of the Dodgers really has come to an end. The Dodgers are actually offering free parking. Gratis!
“We know we had a parking issue during our recent National League Division Series win against Atlanta,” said Renata Simril, Senior Vice-President, External Affairs in a press release.
“We parked more than 20,000 cars and several hundred fans were unable to park at Dodger Stadium last Monday night. We reached our capacity and some fans without parking passes were directed off-site. We were very sorry about inconveniencing these fans and felt we needed to do something to address this problem."
Cars with four or more fans will be given free general parking for the remainder of the playoffs. All autogates and turnstiles open three hours before first pitch. Fans are encouraged to get to the Stadium early to avoid any delays.
Fans who want an alternative to parking can take the Dodger Stadium Express bus service provided by the Dodgers and LA Metro. Fans with game day tickets are able to ride the dedicated shuttle line from Union Station to the Stadium for free. The shuttle operates from three hours before first pitch to 90 minutes after the game ends.
The Dodgers just defeated the Braves in the NL Division Series on Monday and will face either the St. Louis Cardinals or Pittsburgh Pirates in the NL Championship Series. If the Cardinals win tonight, the Dodgers will go to St. Louis on Friday for Game 1 of the seven-game series. If Pittsburgh wins, the Dodgers will host Game 1 on Friday.
