Think Parking in NYC is Tough? Try Getting a Spot at Super Bowl LVI

“I don’t care what city you’re in, at a Super Bowl, there’s going to be traffic. It’s not a Los Angeles thing, it’s just going to happen.”

SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles will not be providing on-site parking for fans going to the Super Bowl, instead directing them toward local Metro services and “Super Bowl Fan Shuttles.”

The Super Bowl parking website had previously had options to purchase parking on the basis of having a special code, but has made changes to reflect that on-site parking will not be available for the general public.

“People are not going to be able to park where they usually park at a regular game,” Kathryn Schloessman, president of the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission, told L.A. Weekly. “We’re really encouraging people to take public transportation, because I don’t care what city you’re in, at a Super Bowl, there’s going to be traffic. It’s not a Los Angeles thing, it’s just going to happen.”

Schloessman added that surrounding private lots and residential parking would also not be available, as the Super Bowl is “just too big.”

“You’re not going to find a parking space, or you’re not going to find your little resident neighborhood parking space,” Schloessman said. “Maybe you’ve got a secret parking space stashed some place—it’s not going to be the same for the Super Bowl.”

There will be a “Blue Shuttle” and “Purple Shuttle” that will schedule pickups every eight minutes, with the passes being $10 per rider. If a fan wants to park at the provided lots for these shuttles, additional parking rates will incur for each corresponding lot. Super Bowl LVI game ticket AND shuttle pass are required to ride. Masks are required on all fan shuttles.

Of course, fans may opt for taxis or Ubers, but “longer than normal” wait times are expected for the game.
