LOS ANGELES (CNS) – It’ll pay to carpool to Dodger Stadium during the
team’s playoff run.
The team announced today that parking will be free for fans who have
four or more passengers in a vehicle arriving at the stadium for the balance of
the postseason.
The announcement followed problems reported by some fans who said they
were turned away at the Dodger Stadium gates Monday night, when the team
defeated the Atlanta Braves to advance to the National League Championship
Series. Turned-away fans said they were told the parking lot was full.
“We know we had a parking issue during our recent National League
Division Series win against Atlanta,” said Renata Simril, the team’s senior
vice president for 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.”
As a result, the team will offer free general parking for vehicles with
four or more people for the rest of the postseason.
The team also continued to encourage fans to arrive early and take
advantage of the free Dodger Stadium Express shuttle from Union Station.
The Dodgers will begin play in the NLCS Friday. Their opponent will be
determined later today when the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals play
the decisive fifth game of their National League Division Series in St. Louis.
If Pittsburgh wins, Games 1 and 2 of the National League Championship
Series would be played at Dodger Stadium Friday and Saturday.
St. Louis would play host to the first two games of the National League
Championship Series if it defeats the Pirates.
