Fans can pay via credit card at the designated tollbooths at Gates 3–4, 5, or 6.

What time do the tollgates open on game days?

The tollgates are staffed with parking personnel beginning several hours prior to the scheduled first pitch. The specific time depends on the anticipated attendance. Please remember that all parking and game tickets must be purchased in advance.

Is tailgating permitted?

Yes, tailgating is allowed but vehicles may not be parked on the grass. Large tailgate groups will be directed to Lot N.

Upon entering, parking personnel will direct you to the appropriate lot (Premium Lot or Reserved Lot or) closest to the Stadium and dependent on Season Ticket reserved spaces.

How will I exit the parking lots?

All tollgates and roads used to access Kauffman Stadium will also be open to accommodate traffic exiting the Truman Sports Complex, and guests will be directed out of the complex via access roads that are nearest to their parking lot. Simply put, you will be asked to exit the same way that you entered.

How late will the parking lots remain open after the game?

The parking lots close one hour after the event ends.

Premium and Reserved Parking

With Premium Lot parking, am I required to use the dedicated Premium Lot entrance on Royals Way (just north of Gate 6)?

No, you may access Premium Lot parking from any gate. However, for those Premium Lot customers accessing the Complex from the west side of Kauffman, we do encourage you to use the Premium Lot entrance on Royals Way—it's designed to provide the quickest access.

Parking for Guests with disabilities

How is the drop-off process for guest with disabilities handled?

The Royals encourage vehicles dropping off a guest to enter the complex through either Gates 3 or 4 and to let the traffic directors know they wish to drop-off a guest. The car will be directed to Gate D and can drop off at the curb. We also have golf carts that are able to pick up passengers and take them closer to the gates.

Has the number of disabled parking spaces changed since the new plan was implemented?

The Royals remain committed to the needs of our guests, especially those who may need a little extra help getting around the ballpark, and exceed the number of disabled parking spaces required by the ADA. In addition, there is an increased number of shuttles available to help transport guests to the Stadium gates, and Royals staff is present at all gates to assist guests.

How can I get assistance from the parking lot to the stadium?

The courtesy golf cart shuttles will operate for each of the Royals 81 home games, shuttling guests needing 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 Gameday Assistance Hotline (816-504-4040, option #5) once parked. After the event, cart shuttles pick up guests requiring assistance from all Gates (A, B, C, D, and E) to the parking lots. All cart shuttles will drop off on the perimeter of the parking lots. Courtesy cart pick up locations are available at all Gates and will transport guests with disabilities to their vehicles. Please feel free to visit any Guest Services office for additional assistance or questions.

I have an oversized vehicle - where will I be directed to park?

Oversized vehicles (taking up more than one space in the lot) will be directed to park Lot N (third base/west wide).

We are traveling to the Stadium by bus. Where should we enter and is there a drop off point near the Stadium entrances for buses?

Buses can enter via the Premium Entrance/Bus Exit next to Gate 6 off of Stadium Drive and drop off at Gate B. Please exit out of the Bus Exit/Premium Entrance next to Gate 6 only.

I'm riding my bike to the game, is there a place where I can chain it up?

Bicycles may enter through any gate and can be chained to the outside of the media fence at Lot B.
