15 Heinz Field Parking Spots For $15 Or Less

It's been said that the chances of getting a Steelers ticket in Pittsburgh is about the same as the proverbial snowball in hell.

While this may be an overstatement, the fact is that their home games have been sold out since 1972.

So it should come as no surprise that Heinz Field parking spots are in such demand…

The bad news:

All official Heinz Field event parking - that is, the red, blue, & gold lots - are sold out waaay in advance.

So if being squeezed out of the red & blue lots makes you turn red or feel blue, or you just want to go for the gold (lot), well you can just forget it.

Resale prices for gold lot passes can easily reach $200 for certain games.

The good news:

There are plenty of spaces in the lots on the other side of the Allegheny River that will charge you as little as 5 bucks even for event parking, and all of them are within a short walk to the Port Authority rail lines that are within the free-fare zone.

So while you won't be able to tailgate in these places and you will be a bit farther from the stadium, you won't have to deal with the nightmarish gridlock when exiting the North Shore parking lots. And, of course, you'll also save some money that you can use for other things, like a Primanti Bros. sandwich or a ride on the Allegheny Wharf Water Limo.


  • Sixth & Penn Garage

  • Benedum Lot
Both of these spots are about a block away from the train depot and are also quite close to the water limo at the Roberto Clemente Bridge.


  • David L. Lawrence Convention Center

  • Manor Complex Garage

  • The Garage at 3 PNC Plaza


  • Fifth Avenue Place Garage. This one is right across the street from the Gateway Station and Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches.

  • Pittsburgh Water Limo Shuttle
  • Ft. Duquesne & Sixth Street Garage. A 1 minute walk to the water limo.

  • First Avenue Garage. Right next door to the First Avenue rail station.

  • Grant Street Transportation Center. Of all the discount parking spots listed here, this is the farthest from any shuttle ride to the stadium - a 10 minute walk to the Wood Street station or 13 minutes to the water limo.
