Cubs announce new free remote parking lot on Rockwell Street
Shuttle service will transport Cubs fans to and from remote parking lot during night and weekend games
CHICAGO - As part of an ongoing commitment to ease vehicle traffic and reduce the number of cars near Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs are launching a free remote parking lot operation two miles west of the ballpark during night and weekend games. The new remote parking lot is located at 3900 N. Rockwell St., just east of the Chicago River immediately south of Irving Park Road. The lot has a capacity of 1,000 vehicles and will be secured by Cubs personnel. The parking service includes free shuttle transportation to and from the remote lot and Wrigley Field.
"We believe free parking is a great incentive for our guests and encourage fans to take advantage of this new remote parking lot," said Manager, Government & Neighborhood Relations Kam Buckner. "We recognize many fans drive to Wrigley Field and this easy-to-use remote parking operation will help alleviate traffic congestion in the neighborhood before and after games."
Shuttles will begin running two and a half hours prior to the start of the game and will run continuously for approximately an hour post-game. At the conclusion of night and weekend games, the shuttle bus will pick up fans at the designated drop-off location on Addison Street.
This shuttle service will also be available for postseason games and night games of a day-night doubleheader. The Cubs' first day-night doubleheader of the season will take place Saturday, June 28.
This newly-introduced free remote parking lot replaces the team's previous remote parking operation at DeVry University.
