How will the Royals determine which lot I will park in?

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

I usually sit on the third-base side but prefer to enter the Stadium from Blue Ridge Cutoff. Can I do this?

Absolutely. While the plan is designed to eliminate cross-traffic between the east and west parking lots, we understand that guests may choose to park on the side of the Stadium that is most convenient for them to access. In this example, guests may enter the parking lot from Blue Ridge Cutoff, park on the east side of the Stadium, and make their way to the third-base (west) side of the seating bowl.

Simply put, you will be asked to exit the same way that you entered.

Premium and Reserved Parking

I have passes for the Reserved Lots, which are on both sides of the Stadium. Do I have to park in one specific lot?

You may park in any lot designated as Reserved Lot Parking. This is designed to give guests more flexibility since you can decide on which side of the stadium you would like to park.

Am I required to park in the Reserved Lot closest to the Stadium? I would prefer to park in a Reserved Lot closer to an exit gate so it's easier to leave the Stadium.

Assuming spaces are available, you may park in any lot corresponding to your parking level (Premium, Reserved or general).

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.

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.

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 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 in Lot L (first base/east side) or 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.
