(Hartford, CT) The Hartford Yard Goats Baseball Club, the Double-A Eastern League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, announced fan friendly parking and commuter plan which includes $5 parking at six select lots and garages, convenient game day CTfasttrak and bus schedule, and even 100 bike racks right at the ballpark. Fans will have the opportunity to park for $5 within two blocks of Dunkin' Donuts Park through a partnership with LAZ Parking and Hartford Parking Authority.
"We made a promise to our fans that we would have $5 parking at Yard Goats games," Hartford Yard Goats General Manager Tim Restall said. "We thank our partners LAZ Parking and Hartford Parking Authority for making this possible and allowing our fans easy access to Dunkin' Donuts Park."
"LAZ is thrilled to bring first-in-class customer service to Hartford's Dunkin' Donuts Park. Our team will provide Yard Goat fans with a safe, secure and affordable parking experience," stated Alan Lazowski, LAZ Parking Chairman & CEO. "We look forward to our partnership and are confident it will enhance the fan experience and bring strong economic activity and vitality to downtown Hartford."
In addition to the $5 parking, there will be a very high level of bus service, including the new CTfastrak service, from throughout the greater Hartford area to within two blocks of Dunkin' Donuts Park. There is free parking available at many CTfastrak stations in New Britain, Newington and West Hartford, and CTfastrak buses have frequent service before and after each home game. Fans may plan a transit trip to the Yard Goats game with Google Transit or Transit App (available in the App Store and in Google Play).
