Others have looked for street parking or lots with prices lower then the $25 to $48 dollars charged by the stadium lots.
I don't know why anyone would drive into a major city just to park next to a stadium*. Seems like such a stupid thing to do and yet I know people that do it and they don't seem like they are stupid on the surface.
The team made it a condition for staying in the Bronx.
"The garages are going belly up and [Bronx Parking's] only plan to remedy the problem is to increase parking rates," Diaz said. "But we have a real plan. We have developers and operators who have the funding and want to talk . . . and build."
Last September, Bronx Parking raised its gameday parking rates from $23 to $35 to cover a $6.9 million bond payment. With another payment looming April 1, the company is in trouble.
Public transport to AT&T is pretty good, but unless you are on caltrain requires you to switch trains, the last 1.5 miles, and its almost as slow as walking when you factor in waiting for the train.
I always drive to Fenway. I usually pay $16 to park in the Prudential Center garage just over a half mile from the park. It's much more convenient than taking the train. It's only a few hundred yards from an entrance to the Massachusetts Turnpike. That's not right next to Fenway. You'd have to be an idiot to want to park in the lots *right* next to the park. From those lots you either have to leave the game in the 8th inning or expect to leave the lot 30 minutes after the game's over.
It's clear they need some parking, for suburban fans and the like, but clearly they built too much parking. Likely because the people making the decisions are used to getting around by car and they assumed everyone else does, too.
After today’s game ends, staffers will keep the docks full with those corralled bikes so fans can check out a bike as usual.
But, Lisle cautions, “after the game there is no guarantee you will have a bike share bike to go home, but we are not removing any of the bikes.”
So: Nats fans who chose bike to cheer on their team may want to consider checking out in the top of the ninth to ensure a two-wheeled ride home.
The bike corral will be in place at all Nationals home games during the playoffs.
