PASADENA (CNS) - Fans planning to attend Tuesday's Rose Bowl are urged to arrive at the stadium by 11 a.m. to avoid delays, or carpool, use public transportation or park in the Parsons Corp. parking lot and take a free shuttle bus to the stadium.
The stadium parking lots will open at 4 a.m. The price to park is $40.
Having four people in a car instead of three will result in 8,000 fewer vehicles on the road, greatly streamlining traffic and parking, according to Lauren Mirson, a marketing and communications consultant for the Rose Bowl.
The Pasadena Police Department and Rose Bowl stadium officials advise fans driving to the game to approach the stadium from the north, Mirson said.
Fans are advised to refrain from using GPS or Internet printed directions as they do not take into account traffic conditions or where available parking is located, Mirson said.
Fans planning on parking at the Parsons Corp. lot are advised to get there before 10 a.m. or after 11:30 a.m. because of heavy traffic expected to leave the lot and adjacent Old Pasadena parking lots between 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. after the Rose Parade.
The price on game day to park at Parsons is $40. Reserved parking can be purchased for $30 in advance online at rosebowl.lazparking.com.
Shuttle bus service from Parsons will run continuously from 10 a.m. until approximately two hours after the end of the game.
Metro will run additional trains and more frequent service on the Metro Gold Line from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. with trains running as frequently as every seven to eight minutes to and from Pasadena.
Riders should exit the train at the Memorial Park Station, walk three blocks west on Holly Street to the Parsons Corp. complex, where a free shuttle bus will take them to the stadium. The boarding location is on Pasadena Avenue, north of Union Street.
Kickoff for the game between Big Ten Conference champion Wisconsin and Pacific-12 Conference champion Stanford is set for 2:10 p.m.
