The Rams are back in town and kicked off pre-season play on Saturday at the Coliseum in a victory over the Dallas Cowboys. It was very exciting! Nearly 90,000 people clamored into the stadium, which begs the question: where'd everyone park?

Enterprising capitalists apparently asked that question in advance of the game, too, as prices for parking near the Coliseum reportedly fetched prices of up to $100, as USA Today noted.

Social media revealed that some operators were charging up to $100 to park, which is too pricey for Mario Lopez, even! #Ridiculous

It appears that there was a far cheaper lot a bit further away, $50— a (comparative) steal!

Curbed notes that the $100 parking prices are four times what tickets for the actual game against the Kansas City Chiefs next week are going for right now. Plus, they also estimated that an Uber ride from Anaheim to the Coliseum would have been far cheaper, too.

Know what's even cheaper than that? Going Metro, duh. Metro's The Source blog has a helpful guide on how to get to the Coliseum, which seems like the only way, really: it's cheap and easy. For $3.50 roundtrip, you can take the Expo Line, which has a stop that's about a 5 to 10 minute walk from the Coliseum.

But, the reality is, we know Angelenos have a hard time ditching their cars, so USC students with driveways: this is your time to make a few bucks.
