SoFi Stadium 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 Irvine 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 nieghborhood 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.
Blue Shuttles will drop off in the Blue Shuttle Lot J at Sofi Stadium adjacent to Super Bowl Entry South 2. Your return trip after the game will also depart from Blue Shuttle Lot J. Estimated travel time from your parking spot to the stadium is 15 Minutes. Routing information to the lot is included with your parking permit and/or shuttle pass. Super Bowl LVI game ticket AND shuttle pass is required to ride. Masks are required on all fan shuttles.
The Blue Shuttle will be picking up fans from several areas, including the 111th Street Parking Lot, Airport Spectrum Parking Garage, Hilton Los Angeles and Airport Parking Garage.
The Purple Shuttle will pick up fans from the Inglewood Civic Center Garage at City Hall, Inglewood Public Library, Inglewood Locust Street Garage, Inglewood Senior Center Garage, Playa District, and Flyte Garage.
Fans also have the Metro option at the C Line (Green) Hawthorne/Lennox Station, which will be free to ride, but may have a parking fee.
Of course, fans may opt for taxis or Ubers, but “longer than normal” wait times are expected for the game.
