Dodgers Offer Free Parking to Carpoolers

Posted: Updated:

The Dodgers Organization is doing their part to encourage carpooling by offering fans free parking at Dodger Stadium during the postseason if they have four or more passengers in their car.

"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. "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."

The club is urging all fans to rideshare or carpool in hopes of reducing traffic flow and parking nightmares during postseason games.

As Dodger Stadium will be at maximum capacity for all postseason games, fans are also urged to arrive earlier than ever to avoid traffic delays and parking concerns. Parking gates and turnstiles will open three hours prior to ALL postseason game times.

Earlier this season, the Dodgers partnered with LA Metro for the fourth consecutive year to offer the Dodger Stadium Express bus service. This year the Dodgers added a dedicated bus lane on Sunset Boulevard from Union Station to Elysian Park Avenue, which further expedites the ride for fans. 

Dodger game day tickets will be honored as payment to ride the bus service and the shuttle will operate three hours before each postseason game until 90 minutes after each game.
