Access Guide for Guests with Disabilities

The Kansas City Royals and our staff would like to welcome you to Kauffman Stadium! We take pride in our ballpark being accessible for everyone and ensuring our guests with disabilities have an enjoyable and comfortable experience. We are always looking for ways to improve our ballpark experience and the quality of each guest's visit, so your feedback and suggestions are vital to our success.

Thank you for your continued support! Go Royals!

Accessible Parking

The guest assistance shuttles will operate for each of the Royals 81 home games, shuttling guests with disabilities or needing physical assistance from the Truman Sports Complex parking lots to the Kauffman Stadium gates. Prior to and during the game, Guest Ambassadors provide shuttle service for guests from the parking lots. Please let your nearest parking attendant know if you are in need of golf cart assistance or guests may call the Game-day Assistance Phone Line (816-504-4040, option #5) once parked. After the event, cart shuttles pick up guests requiring assistance at all Gates (A, B, C, D, and E). All cart shuttles will drop off on the perimeter of the parking lots.
