LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers will offer $5 parking in lots 13 and 14, beginning with the next homestand, May 8-11 against the San Francisco Giants and May 12-14 versus the Miami Marlins. The $5 fee is available in advance and the day of the game on a first-come, first-served basis. The special offer is being made on a trial basis.
Lots 13 and 14 are located across the street from each other on Stadium Way, adjacent to the Los Angeles Fire Department training center, a short walk east of the main Elysian Park Avenue-Gate A entrance to Dodger Stadium. 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," said Dodgers' President and CEO Stan Kasten. "By parking in lots 13 and 14, fans can avoid some of the traffic entering and exiting the stadium lots before and after games.
"We continue to experiment with ways to improve access to Dodger Stadium. 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."
The Dodgers have created dedicated pedestrian walkways and bicycle lanes leading into all entrances, as well as new lights, signage and circulation patterns on resurfaced parking lots. This is of particular help to fans parking in lots 13 and 14, as well as those taking the Metro Nos. 2 and 4 buses on Sunset Blvd. and crossing from the Metro Gold Line in Chinatown. The Dodger Stadium Express from Union Station has two stops in 2014, behind the pavilions and a new stop at the Top Deck, Lot P.
The Stadium Way Gate B (formerly Scott Avenue) was opened to add a fifth entry gate into Dodger Stadium. Fans on Elysian Park Ave. and Stadium Way are encouraged to access Gate B from Stadium Way, where there is direct access to lots 1, 2, 3 and all premium parking. Access to the gate is only from Stadium Way and is not permitted from directly through the Echo Park neighborhood on Scott Avenue.
In an effort to improve traffic flow at all Dodger Stadium entrances, the Dodgers are encouraging fans to purchase parking passes in advance online at dodgers.com/parking to eliminate transaction time at each entrance. Fans purchasing parking in advance for stadium lots pay $10 for general parking and $35 for premium parking, a savings of $5 and $15 over paying upon arrival, respectively.
The Dodgers offer one of the best values in Los Angeles and all of sports with season tickets and mini plans starting at $14 per seat, per game. More information on ticket plans can be found by visiting www.dodgers.com/seasontickets or by calling (323) DODGERS.
