Here's a really neat interactive transportation and parking map that you can use to plan your trip to Tropicana Field. The map includes information on directions, gate access, parking areas, overflow parking in downtown St. Pete, and the baseball shuttle routes and stops.
For the seventh consecutive year, the Rays will provide carpool access to free parking in team-controlled lots. Vehicles with four or more people (no clown cars, please) may park for free for Sunday games in lots 2, 6, 7, 8 and 9. For all other games, the first 100 cars with four or more will park for free up to an hour before game time. Tropicana Field parking rates range from $15-$30 per vehicle.
Parking for Lots 3 and 4 can be purchased online:
Parking also is available in downtown St. Petersburg.
Public lots are at:
- Al Lang Lot - 1st Ave SE & 1st St S
- South Core Garage - Between Central Ave and 1st Ave SE (E/W) and 2nd St S and 1st St S (N/S)
- BayWalk Garage - 1st Ave N between 1st and 2nd streets.
For the Home Opener, and select games, free shuttles are provided by The Looper Trolley. The trolley picks up passengers on 2nd St, mid-block between Central Ave and 1st Ave S (under the Bank of America Tower's pedestrian bridge) and drops passengers off on 16th St S near Gate 4 at the Trop. The shuttle operates from 90 minutes before game time, throughout the game, until one hour after the game is over. See loopertrolley.com for more information.
