The Los Angeles Dodgers will offer $5 parking in lots 13 and 14 on Stadium Way on a trial basis beginning with Thursday'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 today in announcing the plan.
"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 thoughout the team's next homestand, which also includes games Friday through Sunday against the Giants and next Monday through May 14 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."
