What You Need To Know About Phoenix Parking and Roads During The World Series

By on October 30, 2023 0 108Views

The last time the valley saw a World Series game was in 2001. Since that time a lot has changed downtown with new hotels, restaurants and even transportation.

As the city gears up for a very busy two days in downtown Phoenix, there is a lot you need to know if you plan to be in the area or be one of the lucky ones to take in game.

The Diamondbacks are set to take on the Texas Rangers in two games at Chase Field. Game 3 and Game 4 will take place Monday and Tuesday. Monday night’s game will start at 5:03 p.m.

With the increase in visitors in town, and fans who want to be in the vicinity of all the action, downtown will be a buzz.

It is estimated that parking in the area of the ballpark will be at a premium with some garages and lots costing $50 per vehicle. Officials are recommending the convenient, inexpensive method of Valley Metro to get you to and from the game.

Valley Metro announces plans they will be increasing light rail service for the World Series with the last train leaving downtown Phoenix around 11:30 p.m. The light rail has stops very close to Chase Field. Parking for Valley Metro rides are free to use and monitored by security cameras and personnel.

19th Ave/Dunlap

Valley Metro encourages riders to download and use the Valley Metro mobile app, which allows them to track trains and access transit schedules. Rider pass is $4 per day.

On Tuesday, the Phoenix Suns’ have a home game scheduled, right next door to Chase Field, so parking issues and traffic congestion will be at an all-time high. It is recommended that you allow extra travel time and bring patience as you enter the downtown area. Tuesday is also Halloween, which notoriously puts a huge strain on valley roads and freeways as people are eager to get home for trick or treating and other festivities. Keep that in mind as you are trying to make your way into downtown Phoenix.

It is also important to note if you plan to drive into downtown Phoenix, Jackson Street will be closed from 3rd Street to 4th Street on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. There will also be a closure when the train tracks cross on 4th Street to Jefferson.

Go Diamondbacks!
