Green Transportation Options to Scotiabank Field

By Vancouver Canadians | April 16, 2015 1:03 PM

Located right in the heart of Vancouver, Scotiabank Field was one of the first venues in the city to introduce organic composting in 2009; since then we have continued to be a leader in green initiatives and are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. Part of this initiative includes minimizing vehicle traffic for the benefit of our environment and safety of our residential neighbourhood. 

Biking to Nat Bailey Stadium

Vancouver continues to be a leader in promoting alternative modes of transportation; located right on the Ontario Street Greenway, Scotiabank Field is easily accessible by bicycle via any one of the bike routes around Vancouver (for a full map of Vancouver Bike Lanes, click HERE). 

Once you have arrived at the Nat, we are pleased to provide fans with over 200 spaces of free, secure bike parking starting one hour before first pitch until the end of the game. There will be an attendant available at the beginning of each game, but please bring your own bike lock as all parking is at your own risk.

Transit Options to Nat Bailey Stadium

As an added incentive for our fans to 'go green,' the Vancouver Canadians are pleased to offer a $0.50 discount on any Reserved Grandstand ticket purchase when you can present a valid transit pass or transfer for that day. Simply present your transit pass, transfer or Compass Card at the Scotiabank Field Box Office in person to receive your discount.

By Taxi

Taxi services are available post game, simply stop by our Guest Services Booth and one of our friendly C's staff members would be pleased to make a phone call on your behalf. If you are ordering a taxi yourself, please ask the driver to pick you up at 'Nat Bailey Stadium Midlothian Entrance,' located to the west of the Box Office in front of the new Hillcrest Aquatic Centre and Phoenix Gymnastics.

Parking your car at Nat Bailey Stadium

If none of the above options work for you, we do offer parking in and around Scotiabank Field on game days.

At the Ballpark

On game days at Nat Bailey Stadium, parking is available for $10. To ensure you're not disappointed by a sold out parking lot, please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to first pitch. 

At Queen Elizabeth Park

There are over 200 pay parking spaces located at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park - a short walk down the hill from the Nat Bailey Stadium Box Office. To avoid a fine, please ensure to read and obey all pay parking restrictions and purchase your ticket from the pay stations provided.

Around the neighbourhood

Nat Bailey Stadium is located in the heart of Vancouver and out of respect for our neighbours we strongly discourage fans from parking on nearby residential streets. If you do plan on parking in the neighbourhood, please ensure that you respect all parking and traffic bylaws, as the City of Vancouver WILL TOW YOUR CAR if it is in violation. We would hate for you to end a great day at the ballpark with a taxi ride to the impound lot!

Tailgating

As property of the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, Nat Bailey Stadium is subject to city bylaws. This includes no outdoor grills and no alcohol products of any kind in our parking lot. Tailgating is discouraged.

In and Out Policy

Fans are permitted to re-enter Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium through the 1st and 3rd Base Gate entrances ONLY. No re-entry is permitted through home plate entrance gates A-F. A stamp will need to be shown upon re-entry either on ticket or hand. 

Parking your bus at Nat Bailey Stadium

If the public transportation options above do not work for your group, the Vancouver Canadians offer parking for chartered buses at Scotiabank Field on game days. Parking is $20 for large vehicles such as buses.
