Pretty soon the Dodgers will have as many price tiers for parking as they have for tickets.
Now, in addition to the regular $15 parking fee at the gate, the $10 parking if purchased in advance and the $35 preferred parking, the Dodgers are offering a pair of $5 lots – outside the ballpark.
Two lots across from each other on Stadium Way next to the Los Angeles Fire Department facility will offer $5 parking on a trial basis during the upcoming homestand against the San Francisco Giants (Thursday-Sunday) and Miami Marlins (May 12-14).
The Dodgers say it's about a 15-minute walk from the lots below the Elysian Park gate, and it's all uphill. The club said it will offer a free shuttle for disabled fans.
The parking can be purchased in advance or at the gate on a first-come, first-served basis.
Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten said in a news release: "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. By parking in lots 13 and 14, fans can avoid some of the traffic entering and exiting the stadium lots before and after games.
