Your best parking choice is to use one of the North Shore surface lots or garages around PNC Park. By staying on the North Shore, you'll have the easiest access, to and from the ballpark, to I-279 North, Route 65 or Route 28. If you are coming from the north, your parking choices on the North Shore include lots 7A, 7B, 7C or 7D, the surface River Road lots, Allegheny Center garage and North Shore Garage.
You can then get to the ballpark by walking over the Clemente Bridge. With many parking options downtown costing only $5.00 on game days, it's an easy and cost effective way to get to the ballpark!
After the game, if you are going SOUTH or WEST, you'll have easy access to the Ft. Pitt Bridge via Stanwix ramp or Liberty Avenue ramp or to the Liberty Bridge / Tunnel via 6th Avenue. If you're headed EAST, you'll have easy access to I-376 (Parkway East) via the Seventh Avenue ramp or Stanwix, Wood and Grant Street ramps.
There are over 20,000 parking spaces in downtown Pittsburgh. Park at one of these downtown garages for just $5.00 on game days:
* The First Side garage connects to and from the new First Avenue "T" station. Fans can ride for free to the Wood Street Station and enjoy the walk across the Clemente Bridge to PNC Park.
There are nearly 50 other parking lots / garages downtown. The best part is... it's only a five-minute walk over the Roberto Clemente Bridge to PNC Park making parking downtown very convenient.
Fans coming to PNC Park are now able to take advantage of the FREE Light Rail Transit (or “T”) service that will significantly enhance the experience for fans coming to and leaving the ballpark.
Fans can now park at the First Avenue Garage, the Mellon Garage and many other garages in the downtown area for as low as $5 and ride the “T” to the doorstep of PNC Park for free. Also, fans who prefer to park in the lots west of Allegheny Avenue, can now ride the “T” free from the Allegheny Station outside of Heinz Field to the North Side Station on the doorstep of PNC Park’s Home Plate Gate Entrance. In addition to the value that parking in these areas presents, it allows families with young children and persons with limited mobility greater ease and convenience by reducing their walking distance to PNC Park.
The “T” will be available for all 81 home games this season and the Pirates will work closely with the Port Authority to ensure a smooth experience for fans taking public transportation to and from the park.
