PNC Park is situated on Pittsburgh’s North Shore, and features one of the most picturesque ballpark scenes in the country.

If you’re getting to and from the stadium by car, you should follow one simple cardinal rule. If you’re driving in from the north, park in one of the many locations on the North Shore. And if you’re approaching the ballpark from the east, south, or west? Park for cheap in downtown Pittsburgh.

Downtown Pittsburgh has a few convenient garages that offer Pirates game day parking for as low as $5. Many of them are situated within an easy walk of a “T” train station that will deliver you right to PNC Park for free. Check out the Pirates website for a full list of these garages, their prices and where they’re located in relation to the “T” train.

If you’re coming from the north, or interested in the closest parking to PNC Park, you’ll want to check out the spots on the North Shore. The North Shore Garage, W. General Robinson Garage, Red Lot 6, and Gold Lot 2 are all either across the street from the stadium or less than a five-minute walk away. They’ll run you as little as $19, and as much as $34 for the premium option.

You can also park for on the North Shore for just $12 at the Carnegie Science Center North Lot. This parking lot is well situated for fans to grab a ride on the free “T” train, and the lot allows for tailgating.

The Pirates partner with a service called Parking Panda to provide easy game-day parking. You can hop on their website to pay for and reserve a spot throughout Pittsburgh. After you purchase, they’ll send you an email with your parking pass that you can either print out or redeem on your cell phone. Pretty easy, pick the game that you’re headed to in the window below:
