The Los Angeles Dodgers started offering $5 parking in lots 13 and 14 on Stadium Way on a trial basis at tonight's game against the San Francisco Giants in an attempt to ease congestion.
Lots 13 and 14 are located across the street from each other, adjacent to the Los Angeles Fire Department training center. The lots will open to the public at the same time as the other Dodger Stadium parking lots. A free shuttle will be available for disabled fans.
"We have added this parking availability to provide our fans with another savings option that offers easy in and out access and is a 10-to-15 minute walk to the stadium," Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten said.
"By parking in lots 13 and 14, fans can avoid some of the traffic entering and exiting the stadium lots before and after games."
The $5 fee is available in advance and the day of the game on a first- come, first-served basis. The offer will continue throughout the homestand, which also consists of games Friday through Sunday against the Giants and Monday through Wednesday against the Miami Marlins.
General parking at Dodger Stadium is $15, with a $5 discount for those purchasing parking in advance.
"We continue to experiment with ways to improve access to Dodger Stadium," Kasten said.
"The more drivers that park in lots 13 and 14, the fewer the cars that
will enter the Dodger Stadium lots through the auto gates and it will help in
our ongoing efforts to ease traffic congestion."
