Baseball season is upon us, and our Detroit Tigers are back at Comerica Park. If you’ve tried to park anywhere close to Comerica, you know that parking can be an obstacle. (Here’s the link for the official Tigers Traffic Update and parking lots and structures right by the park). But no fear! There are plenty of shuttles and options to get you to the game on time. Most are either in Corktown, Eastern Market, and Greektown. Many have fun sports and Detroit history.
- One thing to watch if you choose to park anywhere downtown—the parking meters are for real and they have a time cap. Don’t park at a meter (unless you download the app and keep an eye on how long you’ve been there). Parking tickets are $45.
- Do not, I repeat, DO NOT PARK ON THE RAIL LINE! It may be tempting to park along Woodward where there might be room, but if you block the Qline, you’ll get a $650 ticket. That would ruin your gameday more than the Tigers bullpen blowing another lead.
- Bring cash for the shuttles. Tip your driver!
- And if you used to park in Brush Park, they’re not too thrilled about that anymore, and there’s a ton of construction going on over there. Metered parking lines many of the streets now.
If you’re looking for alternate options for getting to the ballpark, what to eat, what to see, and who to know, check out our new Comerica Park Guide.
